I'll delete the distribution you uploaded... feel free to upload it again.
Also, any help you could provide in fixing this would be appreciated.

No, I think it's more that different OS's and different compilers build
differently.  The larger ones might be built with -g as well, e.g. with
debugging symbols in, which could also increase size.  Finally, the rest of
the distribution should still be in the binary package, including the
source files and documentation and all that.
