TCP/IP stack memory footprint

Hello 

I am planning to implement a TCP/IP stack on a cyclone III chip to run a simple web server. My main concern is the memory requirements since I have to implement it in internal ram. I have tried the lwIP stack, but have not been able to get the code size under 75kB. If anyone who have any experience with different TCP/IP stacks on the Cyclone III chip can tell me how much memory they needed it would be greatly appreciated.  

I have looked on the microIP(uIP) stack, but I do not believe there is a Nios port to it, does anyone have any experience with that?

I am using rtems ip stack. My understanding is that it is a free bsd port and therefore its probably not smaller than lwip.
