At least, temacs itself is 680K bytes larger.  The new
charset.c mallocs 260K bytes for temporary work.  It is
freed just before dumping, but it is uncertain whether it is
surely returned to the system or not.  In addition, many of
preloaded Lisp files have grown.

I guess the growth is not because of single change but
because of summing up of many small changes.

Of course, someone who has a time to investigate it is
