On an embedded system this probably makes sense. You could likely also 
get a win using --gc-sections -ffunction-sections .

The reason it isn't done on desktop platforms is that 
libdbus-convenience exports a bunch of internal symbols, which are not 
exported by the dynamic libdbus. To build the daemon against dynamic 
libdbus you would need to remove the --export-symbols-regex argument to 
libtool when building libdbus.
