True, but we do that already to a certain extent (E.G. the
Makefile.autotools.in stuff using make install-exec / install-strip),
and we've had (have?) quite some bugs with packages not installing the
same with install-strip versus install-exec or not picking up the
correct strip program and/or arguments.
