Odd dh_strip failure with some packages

Reviewing the latest lintian findings, there are a surprising number of
packages with unstripped binaries, including some that are using debhelper
and dh_strip.  See:


Looking at build logs on i386, the common problem for many seems to be
variations of:

strip: unable to copy file 'debian/libwebauth-perl/usr/lib/perl5/auto/WebAuth/WebAuth.so' reason: Permission denied

I can't duplicate this with a build under cowbuilder with fakeroot, but
that may not be horribly surprising.

Spot-checking several packages with this issue, they all seem to have been
auto-built on ninsei (in some cases, years ago), which makes me think this
may be a very long-standing problem with that particular buildd.  I'm not
sure who to contact, though (or how to find that out).
