Standalone adds maxclang.mxo which is 129.1mb big

    Hi, I just created a standalone of a patch I made a while ago (macOS 10.14.6 & Max 8.2.1) and it added a maxclang.mxo in the extentions folder of the standalone.
    The maxclang.mxo is 129.1mb big and I have no idea what it is and cannot find anything on the forum about it. My guess it has something to do with being compatible with Apple M1 chips machines and Monterey but i'm not sure.
    If its not, I like to remove it since it makes the app more than double the size but I don't know if I can do this without any problems.
    Maybe someone knows more?

      hi,
      (on mac OS.) same case here. While i was able to build a standalone with reasonable size, with max 8.21/8.22 the maxclang.mxo it self is 129 mo, and all externals have pretty much doubled in size.
      Could we get some insight from cycling74? as assumed in the previous post, is it related to M1 support ?
      thx in advance
