If upstream does something nice like use a STRIP variable to hold the path
to strip, you can run:
make install STRIP=:
in your debian/rules (or make, whichever is appropriate). You can use
similar tricks to remove -s from install if upstream puts such things into
If they don't, you have to patch the Makefile.
