On lh-bootstrap and mkroot

Although I have tried neither of lh-bootstrap or mkroot [1], I noticed
that the toolchains of the former is nearly one magnitude smaller than
those [2] of the latter, while both seem to be based on musl and
statically linked.

[2] <https://b.zv.io/mcm/bin/>.

Out of curiosity, may I ask what is the cause of this huge difference?
Additionally, is there a possibility that the two projects join forces,
so one becomes an add-on to the other, and minimising wheel reinvention?
