Well, on F11, if I compile with debugging symbols..and don't tell the target package
to strip in it's install step, the resulting rpm is around 40MB, and if I do strip
in the install, it's 6MB. The only thing that changes is the spec file's arguments
to the install step.
So, I think rpmbuild must NOT be actually stripping all the files...
I'm new to building rpms, so I may be missing something. Here is how I'm building
rpmbuild -ba $RPMDIR/SPECS/xorp.ct.spec
