I'm sorry -- what are you comparing exactly? Are you comparing
drscheme.exe to the result of making a stand alone executable? If so,
that's not entirely unexpected. DrScheme.exe is not a standalone
executable (it must be inside the plt tree to function, which is larger
than 87 megabytes).

Our standalone executable size needs work. It hasn't been a high
priority, so far....
