Oh, my script had a bug that did some of the sums wrong; here's a corrected
list, with everything but the total size (sans BSS) removed, and commas
inserted to make it easier to read:

   4,466,418  drscheme [/usr/lib/plt/bin/mred]
     280,151  elk
     664,776  gauche [gosh]
     586,190  guile-1.6
   9,821,205  mit-scheme
   1,029,080  mzscheme
     539,466  oaklisp
   1,673,289  rscheme [rs]
     373,736  scm
     499,649  stklos
   4,792,380  scsh

Obviously the sizes here are pretty vague, and not always comparable, but
hopefully give a rough idea of the bloat-factor of each scheme.  I presume
mit-scheme's rather absurd size is due to the way its image is constructed --
or does it have gobs of stuff like editors etc built in?

Elk seems to be the closest thing, and indeed the debian package desc says:

   Elk is an implementation of the Scheme programming language, designed
   specifically as an embeddable, reusable extension language subsystem for
   applications written in C or C++.

Does anyone have any experience with it?
