it would be better to use something like this, as using -exec with find
will spawn a new strip command for each file (which will take quite a
bit longer, then if you just feeded strip with a very long list of files :)

find / -type f | xargs strip -g

or something like it, there was a pretty good one posted a long time ago
on the mailing list, if you do a search it should show up
( and search for 'xargs+strip')
