I think we should use STRIP and change all instances of STRIPPROG to
STRIP, unless someone can explain the reason for STRIPPROG's
From the INSTALL(1) manpage:
-s install exec's the command strip(1) to strip binaries so that in-
stall can be portable over a large number of systems and binary
types. If the environment variable STRIP is set, it is used as
the strip(1) program.
install passes stripflags as option arguments to strip(1). When
-S is used, strip(1) is invoked via the sh(1) shell, allowing a
single -S argument be to specified to install which the shell can
then tokenize. Normally, install invokes strip(1) directly. This
flag implies -s.
If you ever utilize INSTALL(1) for cross-compiling anything other than
the kernel you need to set STRIP, so we may as well use that for
kernel compiles as well. It really simplifies my /etc/mk.conf if I
don't need to define both STRIP and STRIPPROG.
