I do remember breaking files by using the wrong version of strip.
It was on Solaris 8 x86 at the time, and since then, I've been careful to use
only GNU strip on GCC/GNU binutils-built software.
I had particularly noted that stripping copies of the same file with both strips
was resulting in files with different sizes.

Has it changed since then? Or maybe it is valid only when using GCC with Sun's
