a) make sure Apache / whatever gzip compresses it as it goes out
b) make sure Apache / whatever sets good expirey headers (i.e. some time 
in the future)
c) host the JS files on a different domain name (or use e.g. Google's JS 
library hosting)

There are obviously whitespace removers/minifiers etc, but I'd expect 
them to not be all that better than e.g. mod_deflate on apache
