It is very unlikely that this difference is primarily due to  
improvements in compiler code or data generation between 2.6.4 and  
3.0. Maybe one of these binaries is stripped and the other not (maybe  
some default changed on FreeBSD), or one is smart linked and the other  
is not (maybe the old shipped units were not smartlinkable and the new  
ones are, or something like that).
