  % ls -l /compat/linux/usr/bin/strip
  ls: /compat/linux/usr/bin/strip: No such file or directory
  % pkg_info | grep linux_base
  linux_base-7.1_5    The base set of packages needed in Linux mode
  % grep strip /usr/ports/emulators/linux_base/pkg-plist.*
  % grep strip /usr/ports/emulators/linux_base-6/pkg-plist.*

According to the emulator/linux_base-6/distinfo*, ``Linux strip''
exists in binutils-*.rpm.  However, binutils related RPM is
not in emulator/linux_base, but is in devel/linux_devtools-7.

While using acroread5 with linux_base-6, this is not a bug in acrobat build.
But using acroread5 with linux_base-7, it results lack of ``Linux strip''.

Porter's Handbook says,

  15.1 Stripping Binaries

    Do not strip binaries manually unless you have to. All binaries
    should be stripped, but the INSTALL_PROGRAM macro will install and
    strip a binary at the same time (see the next section).

Do you want to install devel/linux_devtools-7 in order to strip Linux
binaries?  Ports people, is there any problem about moving binutils RPM
from devel/linux_devtools-7 to emulators/linux_base ?
