This can be accomplished simply by putting
near the top of the latex file.

It shaves off around 400k in a quick test, and looks pretty good (although
it doesn't have a very nice small-caps font, which I am using to mark the
directive and module names).

As Astrid points out, the bad compression is a little strange.  But it
does not seem to be unique to pdflatex.  The old pdf files that I
generated with acrobat web-capture are over 3MB uncompressed and 1.4MB
compressed.  I have no idea why the pdf compression is so lousy.

But anyway, this certainly shouldn't be a priority compared to all the
other things wrong with the file ;-)
