I'm using our toolchain. Gcc should be fine.

I'm building not with mkchrootpkg but with my own chroot. I build
in /tmp and use tmpfs. That never gave problems so far. Enough space is
there extending with swap.

I've build several packages the last days. This is the only one
failing. I already cleaned the build dir and rebooted the system. It
would take a while but it's possible to do again. I doubt the parent
directory is important. There were other libs in it that didn't made
strip fail.

I also remember last kernel and udev brought changes. Not sure if it
was tmpfs or /dev or something simliar.

Is it possible to do the stripping more verbose?
