Indeed, I did some calculations and it turns out, fcron is very small as
well, if you cut down all the unnecessary documents.

4.0K	/etc/fcron/fcron.allow
4.0K	/etc/fcron/fcron.conf
4.0K	/etc/fcron/fcron.deny
4.0K	/etc/fcron/pam.conf
4.0K	/etc/pam.d/fcron
4.0K	/etc/pam.d/fcrontab
4.0K	/etc/rc.d/fcron
32K	/usr/bin/fcrondyn
24K	/usr/bin/fcronsighup
60K	/usr/bin/fcrontab
88K	/usr/sbin/fcron

4.0K	/usr/share/man/man8/fcron.8.gz
4.0K	/var/spool/fcron/systab.orig
272K	Total

It comes down to only 272 KiB, I think this is very acceptable.
