Since perl5-post-install is run as a dependency of the post-install 
target, the tools wrappers should be in place. However, when asking 
pkglint, it says:

WARN: Makefile:338--340: The "strip" tool is used but not added to 

I think this is the reason why it fails.

Let's see whether we can fix it before the branch. (This is more a 
political issue than a technical. Just committing the change would be 
easy, but then some people will surely complain ...)
