[Libreoffice] Deliver and build tree size

Hi all,

I just enabled striping on link for gbuild on Linux unless you
explicitly requested symbols, by setting SYMBOL/SYMBOLS or DEBUG:


If you can test on other platforms (OSX/BSD) feel free to add the code
for those platforms too.

Also I added an option to hardlink from SOLVER into WORKDIR. To enable
this you currently have to set gb_Deliver_HARDLINK manually. We could
do that per default in configure/set_soenv on non-Windows platforms,
but this would imply OUTDIR, WORKDIR and SRCDIR to be on the same


Opinions about this? 

Al these measures reduce the size of the build tree, making the stuff
a bit more newcomer friendly. Yet another option would be to symlink
from OUTDIR, I have not yet investigated if this breaks scp2 (which
might do a recursive copy retaining symlinks, or stuff like that).

Best Regards,
