Several platforms I know of have a `strip' that will return an error if
it's inadvertently run on something that's not a binary it understands.
MIT's Makefile's should either

- add a `-' to the front of any strip lines, so failure from strip doesn't
   cause the entire target to fail


- use something like

 	strip foo || true

so a "success" is always returned, even when strip fails.
