One of the bigger ones these days is librpc/gen_ndr, the rpc
marshalling code. This is repeated in many binaries and
could probably be put in a shared library if the executable
size is really important. I think that's the lowest-hanging
fruit (which tends to grow with later releases :-)).

Patches welcome :-)
