It's the opposite: findstring returns the match if any, and an empty string
if no match is found, so the "ifeq" test is checking whether DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS
does not contain "nostrip"... To check whether DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS does contain
"nostrip", the test would be
ifeq (nostrip,$(findstring nostring,$(DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS)))
But that's not much use since we're trying to determine the opposite!
In summary, the code quoted above is correct.
