 Well, stripping binaries upon linking makes one lose the ability to debug
uninstalled binaries.  A better approach is to use:

INSTALL_PROGRAM='${INSTALL} -s' ./configure
make install

which I actually use for plain autoconf packages, which have no idea of
install-strip.  Still, it's more like a workaround than a solution when
the install-strip target exists but is unoptimal.
