Something strang with counting algorithm... Some examples
92      c-pascal 9852+13595 bytes (du -ks can be also checked)
120     insbox   7669+70321
384     platex   45474+6567+48971+141096
5936    qfonts   53915+4576+276603+42626+56040+412921+9632
not counting only .tpm and list files

There is qxcm! (since TeX Live 5 and 2000 ;-) It only needs some .fd and
.sty files... (perhaps also some .enc files)
              doc dvips  afm  pfm   tfm  type1
464 (?) qxcm 76064+2291+70896+8659+13240+176218

Anybody can do with it what is needed. Some volunteers needed...
