A bunch of stupid questions :
- shouldn't it be rw rather than x ?
- why don't we just let strip handle that ? (i.e. let it fail if it
doesn't have the permission)
Also if makepkg and that command were run as root, the permissions
don't seem to matter
- would anyone want to strip everything regardless of their
permissions (and running strip as root for that reason) ?
