We could create a ${TOOLSDIR}/bin/strip that is either a symlink to
the real strip command, or does one that does nothing, and set
STRIP=strip in the {CONFIGURE,MAKE}_ENV.  That should allow us to
prevent stripping without having to patch a whole bunch of packages
or having to check _INSTALL_STRIPFLAG, etc.  Anyone see any flaws in
this idea?
