[Samba] smaller samba binaries for embedded system

Hi all,
I am trying to build a nas box for an embedded device that runs Linux. I
have cross compiled the samba-3.0.24 suite, but the binaries i got are
bigger and could not fit onto the free space that I have on the flash (i
have only 2MB free). I have seen smaller samba binaries for NSLU2 box. I
have disabled all the unnecessary options while compiling samba. I googled
about my problem but could not find any solution.
Does anyone have any idea on how to reduce the size of these binaries?
Any suggestions about where to strip off unnecessary code in samba that will
not be required for a embedded nas solution?
