Why is system ace file size so large?

We use a Virtex5 with PPC, and a system ace file.  The 2 basic inputs are a bit file which is ~3MegaBytes, and an ELF file which is VxWorks which is ~6Megabytes with all the debugging symbols stripped out.  The system ace file turns out to be ~38Megabytes.


I thought stripping out the debugging symbols, which changed the ELF file from about 22Meg down to 6, would shrink the final output, but the output from genace seems to be exactly the same size.  Is there any way to reduce the size?
