Moving from Codewarrior to KDS

We are currently trying to move a project from Codewarrior to KDS we get it to compile but the size have become too big to fit on the device, we have checked the flags and options in the settings menu several times.

any ideas what can cause this?

 

we are using the same ld script to map the memory but it still differs slightly, here is a comparison between CW and KDS from size:

CW.elf  :

section                size        addr

.interrupts             248           0

.text                 61256        2048

.data                   704   536862720

.user_data2            8128   536870912

.bss                   3764   536863424

._user_heap_stack      2048   536867188

.romp                    36   536879040

.ARM.attributes          51           0

.debug_info          129740           0

.debug_abbrev         30041           0

.debug_loc            52002           0

.debug_aranges         7296           0

.debug_macinfo      9318816           0

.debug_line           89064           0

.debug_str            34856           0

.comment                121           0

.debug_frame          16712           0

vs

 

 

KDS.elf  : (had to disable some features to get it to compile, thats why its smaller here)

section                size        addr

.interrupts             248           0

.text                 83880        2048

.init_array               4       85928

And why do i get .init/finit_array now and not before? is there a flag i can set to remove it?
