Well, our strip(1) claims:
-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.

Maybe /usr/ucb/install also honors the STRIP variable? If so, setting
in /etc/mk.conf should work, no?
I always said there was something fundamentally wrong with the universe.
