Shared libraries can be striped with 'strip --unneeded'.
Static libraries and *.o -- only with 'strip --debug'.
ld*.so can be striped with 'strip --debug', but 'strip --unneeded ld-2.0.7.so'
breaks debugging of dynamically linked programs by gdb, so don't do that
(really, gdb needs only one or symbols from ld-linux.so.2 but I don't
remember which ones)
