Answer: The typical size of a statically linked Motif app is in the megabytes.
This is often caused by the size of libXm.a. A large part of this gets linked
in to even trivial Motif programs. You can reduce the code size by linking
against shared libraries if they are available.  Running "strip" on the
executable can often reduce size. Note that the size of the running program
should be measured by "ps", not by the code size.
