C stack frame sizes

Has anyone ever empirically studied the sizes of C stack frames for UNIX
applications?  The particular question I have is:  How serious would a
65kbyte maximum frame size be for a 32 bit machine.  I don't think I've
ever seen a function that would come close to this limit, but I really
don't have a good feel for how reachable this limit would be in the
majority of cases.
