It's not 1 meg, it's only 400k; but I take your point.  And the answer
is, I haven't a clue.  On my system (BSD/OS 4.0.1), building 1.11 and
1.11.1p1 with --disable-client --disable-server gives:

        text    data    bss     dec     hex
        332500  3348    5728    341576  53648   cvs1-11
        335998  1444    5716    343158  53c76   cvs1-11-1p1

So whatever caused the large difference is specific to your platform. 
1.11.1 was the first release to use automake, so I can only conclude
that the difference is due to different compilers, compile options, or
link options due to the differences between the pre-automake build rules
and the automake build rules.  As you can see from my results, there
were no changes in the CVS code to account for such a drastic change.
