Hmm, so really then I shouldn't notice that  huge difference, because I have smart linking on (both
smartlinking options checked, using lazarus IDE for win32). But I'm going to run a fresh command line compile
now, just incase some setting is mucked up somewhere or a misconfigured cfg file is somehow being called.
