The size increase is due to the inclusion of the translation files for
non-english language support.  We had several bug reports regarding the
lack of this capability, and decided that it would be better to include
it despite the size increase, since it is a significant feature of Gtk+.

The installer does still tout the huge reduction in size associated with
the removal of all the C development files, which is what dramatically
reduced the size before.
