What are you trying to achieve?
Stripping *ONLY* reduces the size of the binary on disk. It has *NO*
effect on the amount of memory needed to run the binary. So, unless you
are running out of disk space (or backup space, etc), you should not strip
binaries, particularly if there is any chance that you may need to obtain
a backtrace usiong gdb.
