Hm, I hope you are aware of the security implications though.
Also, you might be able to reduce them even more by still not
using -pie but compiling with -fPIC.
Also if you haven't gone through the configure options, there is
also --enable-hardcoded-tables.
It will increase binary size and .rodata significantly though,
but will reduce .data (most significantly sbr_qmf_window_us)
and .bss.
