Ok, I'll look at fixing this. At a quick glance, I don't see any
way to replace the hardcoded /usr/src with a variable, since
bsd.own.mk can be included from anywhere within the tree. So maybe
installing stripbin.sh to /usr/bin is the only way to go.
I'll also do some testing with cross-builds and send a revised patch
to the PR.
