+1 on this one --- seems about the right level of effort, considering
that install-strip isn't exactly an encouraged option anyway.  (Does
anyone still care about the amount of disk space involved?  And it makes
debugging problems infinitely harder.)

Just for the record, I'd like to put forward the alternative solution
of removing support for install-strip.  But assuming there are
objections to that, please send in the mentioned 4-line patch ...
