Would that be not loaded if I started it up as 'emacs -nw'?
Might be worth a try to see how much less it is, wouldn't it?
Actually, I'd be interested to know what you guys see with that
in comparison.

I've never got used to -nw because there's always either
some key-bindings or color support discrepancy compared
to X or Cocoa clients.

The Linux X Emacs I configure as follows:
/configure --without-selinux --without-tiff --without-sound \
      --without-dbus --without-gconf --without-gsettings --without-xft \
      --without-gsettings --with-x-toolkit=no

./configure --with-ns --without-gnutls
