Compiling in support for extra features or creating unoptimized code by 
default maybe? At least Curt Hibbs' builds and Linux ones create a 
static executable that invokes the interpreter stored in ruby18.dll, so 
there might be some size overhead appearing around those parts too.

I can't really vouch for MinGW or whateer you used as far as code 
compactness is concerned.
