Bug#72849: policy: advises to use -s flag to install in wrong place
Section 4.1 tells to use something like:
INSTALL = install
ifeq (,$(findstring nostrip,$(DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS)))
INSTALL += -s
This is usually wrong, as automake Makefiles also use INSTALL for
non-binary files. I tried this and got a complaint while it attempted
to strip a manpage :(
INSTALL_PROGRAM should be probably be advertized instead.
Also, packages using debhelper may just call dh_strip and don't need
to care about adding -s flag to install.
