Maybe it would be good if this was optional.

pkgsrc is not consistent. Some things are stripped and some are not.

My custom has:

  INSTALL_LIB?=          \
-       ${INSTALL} ${COPY} -o ${BINOWN} -g ${BINGRP} -m ${BINMODE}


.if !empty(CC_VERSION:Mgcc*)
# and maybe have an option to say to use _STRIPFLAG_CC ??
