BTW, is there an opensource analog to SysV mcs(1) (manage comment
section)? It can be stripped by adding -R .comment to STRIPFLAG, but
mcs(1) has a nice -c flag:
-c Compress the contents of the comment section of the
ELF object files. All duplicate entries are removed.
The ordering of the remaining entries is not dis-
The savings, though, are, arguably, minuscule - e.g. libc.so has a
.comment section of about 30K.
