So do I.  But then, I don't use install-strip on them.

In any case, I don't know of any way to convince the system install
program to run a particular strip program, as opposed to plain
`strip'.  So this is as good as it gets, unless we go for MAYBE_STRIP,
which comes with its own problems, as you have pointed out.
