 No, a trick doesn't remove the pain of coming out of an environment,
running a command, and then going back into the environment.  I think
"why don't I leave that until when I have to come out of chroot - it
will then strip any add-ons I've built as well".  You appear to think
"Everything strippable from LFS itself has now been built, the important
thing is to strip these bloated binaries as soon as possible".  We just
see things differently.  Anyway, the chroot command for going back in
is cut down, isn't it ?

This is a job for Riviera Kid!
