@Minuous : it may be... or may be not, if you consider that it is not the source of a single c compiler for only one plataform, but the souce(s) of an uptodate c++ compiler, which tries to implement all the stuff in the c++ standard, and that is made to run on dozens of different platforms and to generate code for dozens of different processors . So it is a multiple-target multiple platform cross-compiler, besides the fact that GCC contains also a fortran compiler, a pascal compiler, an objective c compiler, a java compiler and some more.

So, is 30Mb excessive to implement all this stuff? It may even be, but it does not mean that the compiler isn't good, nor that it isn't usefull.
