I agree.  444 and 555 library permissions are stupid.  Does makepkg 
actually error out at trying to strip them?  The "fix" I have proposed 
for makepkg just ignores libraries without write permissions when usign 
fakeroot (the only case strip actually fails).  Perhaps namcap should 
warn about these.
