Do you have some tools to help getting the size down?
I've so far been using this command (as a script) which sorts symbols by
objdump -t "$1" | grep "$2" | awk '{ print $5"   "$6 }' | grep '^0' | sort | less

I mostly used it to search for large tables that are in .data even
though the should be const (and thus in .rodata) by calling it like this:
sortsym.sh ffmpeg_g '\.data'
