[Wine] Building wine-20050930 uses *a lot* of hd space

Yesterday, I noticed that I had lost about a gig of hd space without
knowing what had used that much. Turned out that it was the
wine-20050930 build directory that was using 850mb of hd space. I
pinned down the problem to the wine-20050930/dlls directory, which was
using about 600mb hd space. For example, advapi32.dll.so was 1155k,
while advapi.c was only 8518 bytes and advapi.o was 149k. I tried
bzipping advapi32.dll.so, and its size went down to 279k. Then I tried
making the wine-20050930 directory into one big bzipped tar, and it
became 174mb.

Is it just me that finds this to be strange? 850mb is a lot of hd
space, and I don't remember that building older versions of wine used
that much hd space. And the files were very compressible.
