I believe you should open an issue at repository in github:


- Are binaries (beyond the extension) included in the gem?
- Was cross-compilation used to produce the binaries?
- Are the extensions stripped of debug symbols?
- Are sample files bundled in the gem?

In relation to the last point, normally no user dig into the gem content to
look at the samples but instead they pull the repository or copy around.

See if these points can help decrease the gem size.

Thank you.
