Yes. And this is also how I lost the links initially, the strip command 
made a copy and thus destroyed the symlinks. So I now need to create a 
script that checks for non-symlink before trying to do the strip.

I was wondering if we could not remove the -g flag from a normal 
compile. Who is debugging anyway? Developers? But they have deep 
control over what is happening anyway. So, why shouldn't the default 
build not be without symbols and optimized?
