I have compiled the Engine with the following details:

Git commit: cfcb6e11f25adb13177ba08777263288a5ec6f61 (master, 07/21/2018)
OS: Kubuntu 18.04
Compiler: gcc 7.3.0 / llvm 6.0
Command: scons platform=x11 target=release_debug tools=yes -j 4

Unfortunately the compiled binary size is 139 mb. This is rather big compared to the 5.0.5 binary that is downloadable from the homepage.

Is someone else experiencing this issue too?

why do you need a small binary?

Try to recompile with the following command:

scons platform=x11 target=release_debug tools=yes debug_symbols=no -j 4

Notice debug_symbols=no option that tells Scons not to include debug symbols which should result in a smaller executable, or add separate_debug_symbols=yes if you need them for debugging purposes I suppose.

You can disable some other stuff from the build by taking a look at the output of scons -h, I think you could turn off some modules that you don't actually need.
