Looks like I never got to answer your mail.

I wrote a stupid 10 lines bash program that tested every permission,
and it seemed that both r and w were needed for strip.
But IIRC, I did one test inside makepkg (so using fakeroot) and got
different results.
Actually I was probably so confused by the permissions I got in
package built by makepkg that I completely gave up.

Now I remember why I did not answer, I have only new confusions to bring...
