Ok, all I meant was:

* Either set the INSTALL* variables by hand (eg to a hacked
  install-sh), or
* Set STRIPPROG to the program you want to use to strip ("strip
  --my-options"), and

* Don't use `install-strip', which won't do what you want.

Ok, this is actually "wrong".  `install-data' shouldn't be installing
architecture-specific files.  It does because of the name `kmoddir'.
You actually "want" to name it `kmodexecdir'.

Harlan>  install-strip:
Harlan>         $(MAKE) $(AM_MAKEFLAGS) 
Harlan>           INSTALL_STRIP_FLAG=-s \
Harlan>           `test -z '$(STRIP)' || \
Harlan>             echo "INSTALL_PROGRAM_ENV=STRIPPROG='$(STRIP)'"` install

install will invoke install-data, so I think the `-s' will be passed

Ok.  That does make things harder.  Basically what you want is
something we've never had to handle before.  So things are tough.  I
wonder if there's an efficient way to add a per-program
