No, it probably means that the options you set in RHIDE somehow don't get 
to gcc.  I don't use RHIDE, so I won't know why that might happen, but it 
seems like the simplest explanation to everything you report.

Just to make sure that I'm right, try compiling your program from the DOS 
prompt and see if -O3 and -s (lower-case) have any effect on the size of 
the .exe file.  They should.

In general, the smalles program compiled with -s should yield a .exe file
slightly less than 30KB.  If you get significantly larger executables,
something's wrong.
