I have the following stats for the minified libs of ExtJS v3.1.0
OpenLayers SVN r10095 and GeoExt SVN r1928:
So a total of around 1.5 MB.
These and some css are required for GeoExt. With OpenLayers and ExtJS
(http://www.extjs.com/products/extjs/build) one can build custom
versions that exclude unused classes/code. For example, for a mobile
site using only WMS, I have built an OpenLayers minified lib of 124K.
I haven't tried yet with ExtJS.

Hard to say, as indicated above one can assemble custom builds. A full
OL takes a fair share.
