I think stripping on deliver was always broken by design, although I
understand why the shortcut was taken. Stripping should be either be
done directly in the workdir, or upon packing the instset IMHO. I tend
to favor the second option, as it keeps information in the binaries as
long as possible. Also IIRC even in the current build there is some
stripping stuff implemented upon packing which would just strip the
already stripped binaries. But I might be wrong there.
