The manpage of strip from binutils-2.14.91 has the following text regarding
having detached debug information:

  Note - the choice of ".dbg" as an extension for the debug info
  file is arbitrary.  Also the "--only-keep-debug" step is optional.  
  You could  instead  do this:

    1.<Link the executable as normal.>
    2.<Copy "foo" to  "foo.full">
    3.<Run "strip --strip-debug foo">
    4.<Run "objcopy --add-gnu-debuglink=foo.full foo">

Shouldn't Step 4 not simply be '<Copy "foo.full" to "foo">'?
