bike frame weight difference

If two bikes are set up completely the same way with the same components, but one is a butted chromoly frame and the other a tensile steel frame, what would the weight difference be, ball park?

I am looking to buy a bike for commuting in a major city. I care about weight a little bit for the few times when I have to carry the bike up the apartment, but I am not a weight weenie. I'm going to build up the bike myself so components won't part of the consideration; just the frames. Obviously chromoly is better, but after having my last nice bike stolen I'm reluctant to spend too much on my bikes.
