I was literally referring to the output of command:

size DES_bs_b.o

Specifically, the number it reports for the .text section.  It should be
around 30 KB, but will vary slightly between the builds.

File sizes do not matter - they mostly reflect debugging info and the
like, which does not affect performance.

I'm sorry that I did not state this more clearly.
