[tex-k] is there any reason not to strip tetex binaries?

I was wondering why the strip target in the tetex 3.0 Makefile is empty.
The Changelog has an old entry
Mon May 10 01:16:56 CEST 2004
* top-level Makefile: lo longer strip any binary
and various packages refer to an old bug
"Don't strip binaries explicitly (bug #62568)."
but bugzilla at redhat won't let me see the bug explanation
The only other thing I found is a problem with GNU strip on Solaris.
So my question to the list:
can I safely strip tetex 3.0 binaries on recent linux distributions (fedora,
redhat EL, debian, centOS)?
What's the downside apart from losing debugging abilities.
