Use strip instead of sstrip (was: Re: More software development on the Ben: static linking works but shared linking fails--still!)

Hi, David and Wolfgang,
I have been building my images with strip and the difference is quite
small. According to some web item I found when researching what
sstrip did, the claim was that strip took out most of the space and
sstrip added only a small amount, sometimes less than one per cent.
Not stripping at all, which I also tried, increased library sizes by
perhaps 10 per cent or so. I didn't really look that closely. I had
no problem with either space on the SD/NAND or in RAM. But then I
only run command line:) Except for gmu, I don't use the frame buffer
yet--takes too much space:)
So I would recommend that strip be used and not sstrip. The
difference in space is AFAIK less than one per cent.
