Stripping

I propose to change the stripping instructions from:

	strip --strip-debug /tools/lib/*
	strip --strip-unneeded /tools/{,s}bin/*

to:

	strip -x /tools/lib/*
	strip /tools/{,s}bin/*


"strip -x" strips all non-global symbols, not only debug ones,
which produces smaller libraries, and removing --strip-unneeded option
doesn't hurt anybody.

And maybe add a comment about the .note and .comment sections,
at least to say that they can be removed safely.
