Hello Massimiliano,

To 1) Indeed only `libelf` might be needed for detecting non-stripped 
          It is an optional dependency and if it's not installed, it 
won't be build with it.
          I was not aware that libelf is packaged as separate package.
          Here is the relevant code btw:
To 2) Indeed, gettext can be likely moved to build deps then.
To 3) The gui can be found in the develop branch, it's not yet in 
          It will be included in the next release which will be 
probably somewhen this month.
          More information here:
