BUG: The strings 'name' and 'instruction' are always allocated but are only freed if the length of the string is greater then zero. They should always be freed. FIX: take the m_free(<string>) out of the conditional From Erik Hovland

You can disable whole classes of algorithms on the command line with the LTC_NO_* defines.  From there you can manually turn on what you want to enable.  

The following build with GCC 3.4.3 on an AMD64 box gets you AES, CTR mode, SHA-256, HMAC, Yarrow, full RSA PKCS #1, PKCS #5, ASN.1 DER and MPI in 
roughly 80KB of code.

-DHMAC -DYARROW -DMRSA -DMPI -Os -fomit-frame-pointer" make IGNORE_SPEED=1

Neato eh?
