Why does 'make install' strip the executables? It's a bit hard to

Noticed that as well. I think you can change that behavior by defining
the STRIP evironment variable to "true", eg. STRIP=":" or
STRIP="/bin/true" or something. I could not get it to work for some
reason, but grepping through the configure scrip shows that support for
this is there.
What I eventually did was to rename the strip command :)
