Bug#384366: x11-common: /usr/bin/X is not stripped

Package: x11-common
Version: 1:7.0.22
Severity: minor

On my system "file /usr/bin/X" reports:
/usr/bin/X: setuid setgid ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386,
version 1 (SYSV), for GNU/Linux 2.4.1, dynamically linked (uses shared
libs), for GNU/Linux 2.4.1, not stripped

Applying strip reduces the size of the file to about the half.

In case this is intended for some reason, it is not documented
in /usr/share/doc/x11-common/*

Also note, that Policy 10.1 says, that
"... by default all installed binaries should be stripped ..."

Kind regards,
