Very large PS and PDF files created by 2.5 on SuSE 9.3

Since I also had problems with the Lilypond package of SuSE 9.3 (not embedded ec-fonts) - though I think it is rather a tetex problem, as I had the same problems with Lilypond 2.4.5 and 2.4.6 compiled from source as well - I installed 2.5.30 and now the former problem has disappeared. (Since, as I believe, 2.5.x does not use tetex any longer.)

Now, however, the size of the ps and pdf files are enormous.
A one-page choir score for 4 voices, produces a 1,0 MB ps and a 129,5 KB pdf file, Lilypond 2.4.5 produced from the same source a 25,6 KB pdf file (I did not keep the ps). More surprisingly, the pdf file can be greatly compressed, with bzip2 I get a file size of 31,7 KB. With another (4 page) score I also received a pdf of ca. 130 KB/page, which I could zip to ca. 30-35 KB/page.

Which program is responsible for this? Lilypond 2.5; the Ghostscript (8.15rc1) or the Pango (1.8.1) of the SuSE 9.3 distribution?
