Note coreutils is up the top at 14.6MB
It has a new feature in recent versions to reduce disk usage with:
  ./configure --enable-single-binary
It might be worth trying out?  Caveat is some more shared
libs for some tools, which associated higher virt mem usage.
This drops the binaries disk usage from about 5.3MB to 1.2MB
(there are about 10MB of translations and docs).
