It's best that if strip fails, install fails. strip could unlink the original file but fail for some reason to rename the temp file to the original name. Your problem could be a bug in the cross-binutils Makefile; scripts shouldn't be installed with "install -s". BSD-style Makefiles use PROG= and SCRIPTS= definitions, and automake-generated Makefiles use foo_PROGRAMS= and foo_SCRIPTS= to install executable binaries vs scripts. -- Dan Nelson dnel...@allantgroup.com _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
