[C++-sig] Reducing size of binary

I'm currently using Boost Python in a fairly large project using Linux and
g++.  The combined .so code that I tried to wrap is around 9MB (-O with no
symbol).  I got to a point where the python wrapper binary gets pretty big
(sometimes the wrapper debug .so with symbols can get to 350 MB and the -O
version without symobls would be around 18 MB).  Compile time can get up to
15-20 minutes.  As far as I see, I'm not doing anything too extraordinary.
I am using a lot of add_property and def methods in the wrapper code.

Does anyone have hints on reducing the size of the wrapper binary?
