The Small-lfs.txt tip suggests additional files can be stripped after 
building LFS.  They can be found with 'find / -exec file {} \; | grep 
"not stripped"'.  I ran the command on a mounted, but not booted LFS 
partition.  I expected to find very few files, but found 1,337.  I 
thought I ran the chapter 6 stripping step.

However, after stripping the found files (strip --strip-debug), 
re-running the tip command shows only /usr/lib/crtn.o changed.  What 
might I have done wrong?  The found files were only on the LFS partition 
as I did a find not on /, but on the LFS partition.
