Decreasing size of OSX compiles?

So I’m just getting this xplatform juce VST stuff going… noticed that mac version is a hair over over 8MB for something super simple. Is there anything that I can do to reduce that dramatically?

8 MEGS!!

motherfucker. is that the release build? what size in win32?
thats fucking enormous! that’s bigger than JUCE!
I thought my MFC activex component was big!

yeah, you have to use the strip tool to get rid of all the debug stuff (which still seems to be in there if it’s a deployment build). It’s still twice as big as an intel exe though.

yeah… I noticed that… it was a deployment build and still f’n HUGE! Okee, I’ll investigate the strip tool thingy.
