According to <https://www.freebsd.org/cgi/man.cgi?query=seq>, seq

Is it?

$ size /usr/bin/perl /bin/bash
   text    data     bss     dec     hex filename
2068661   27364     648 2096673  1ffe21 /usr/bin/perl
1056850   22188   61040 1140078  11656e /bin/bash

Of course, a lot of perl is part of loadable modules.
