Portage warns about pre-stripped files being installed into the image directory; this is a bad thing since it makes Portage's splitdebug feature useless, and it stops the users and the developers from looking into backtraces with full debug information available.
For the developers going to look into it, what you have to look out for, to
find what is stripping the files, is one of these conditions:
- explicit "strip" command run on the produced files;
- "install -s" command to install the binary files;
- "-Wl,-s" flag passed during linking
Remove the "strip" commands, remove the "-s" option at install, and remove
"-Wl,-s" and the problem should be gone.

Patch to strip hardcoded -s in LDFLAGS
The reason is a hardcoded "LDFLAGS = -s" in Makefile template. The above patch strips it. Compiles without problem afterwards here on x86.
See also the patch at 240125 for ignored CFLAGS. The attached patch there is cumulative in that it fixes also the pre-strip problem from these bug.

Fix for respecting CFLAGS bug #240125 and prestriping binaries bug #240108.
Patch submitted by Thomas Beierlein. Thank-you, Thomas.
