OK, it turns out the /usr/bin files such as /usr/bin/smbclient are not 
stripped where they are bigger so this accounts for some of the size 
increase.

However, for both version, /usr/lib64/libsmbclient.so is not stripped and the 
size increase from 18MB to 24MB.

OK, since at least some of the problem is not being stripped and this is 
repeatable, I am going to bugzilla this.
