Massive size increases in certain packages



I just got a bug report on python-numarray (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=240289) indicating that the size of the installed package has increased from around 6.7MB in FC6 (1.5.2-1.fc6) to around 56MB currently (1.5.2-2.fc7). Now, the only this that was done was to rebuild the package for python 2.5 back in December.

If I rebuild the package now the size is back to "normal". The differences are in the size of the shared libraries:

< 1272  /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/numarray/_bytes.so
< 1264  /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/numarray/_chararray.so

and so on.

I did a quick compare of FE 6 to the last FE devel and found that the following packages have increased in size by more than a factor of 2. Some of these may be fine, I haven't looked into it in detail.
