Why don't we strip them (i.e. why arn't they striped when .so files
are)? Debug symbols are not included in most cases anyway. Without strip
libjava.a (from gcc) is over 40 megs big. I'm intrested in it, since
ocaml package often use .a libraries, and they should be striped.

Should I add this to our rpm scripts?
