[pacman-dev] stripping binaries in makepkg

Why do we only strip binaries in $STRIP_DIRS and not every binary in the

The current behavior fails with multilib unless you add usr/lib32 to the
list, but I fail to see a good reason why we use a variable here.
Scanning will probably be a bit slower, but that only holds true for big
packages and normally those have huge compile times anyway.

Can someone enlighten me please?
