Trimming the fat from PerlAPPby 2old4this (Initiate)

2old4this has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
To the Monks(or anyone who would help me),
I have finally gotten my TK script working correctly, begged the Company's purchase of the Perl Dev Kit and all the while making grand claims that a Perl script executing in standalone executable form would be the most cost effective solution in money and manhours.
I spit out a semi busy little script that loads the following:
The bundled "APP" turned out to be 3.5MB!
I knew that there would be overhead but was still a little surprised.
I later managed to cut it down to 1.99MB by removing Encode's CN, JP, KR & TW pm's but I'm wondering if I can trim even more unneeded libs to give the "APP" a more waifish look on the harddrive.
I am looking at more encodes and unicodes, but am holding everything suspect. Any suggestions?
