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.

Maybe when you've got some time we can take a peek at this Diego. I've tried to fix this in the past and I wasn't successful, but that was with the qmake3 build system. I'd be interested to try to fix it for the 0.22 series which is now qmake4.

I've fixed this ages ago.
