How big is your binary, why do you need to reduce its size?  I ask 
because most of the time this question is the result of a link gone bad 
where part of the linked binary lives in low memory space and part lives 
in high memory space.  As a result, the .bin has a huge amount of filled 
(unused) data between the two.
