> The problem is that "install" is run with "-s" argument to strip symbols but always uses default "strip" executable even in cross-compile mode. To fix the bug I check for the "strip" executable in the configure.ac and provide the result to the "install" command using "--strip-program" argument. The patches are attached to this email.

Thanks for the patch!
