I am wondering about the strip stuff:
I was under the impression that dh would set the strip options in the $(INSTALL_PROGRAM) for the Makefile, so that an explicit strip wasn't necessary. Is that true? If so, I'll change up the pd packages to use INSTALL_PROGRAM and INSTALL_DATA properly. I don't know why I didn't do this to begin with.

No, debhelper does not interfere with $(INSTALL_PROGRAM). For Debian packaging binaries should not be stripped during build - then dh_strip should deal with stripping afterwards.

Problem is, the unusual filenames goes below the radar of dh_strip, and (according to Felipe) dh_strip cannot be spoonfed additional files to strip.

Makes sense. My question is: does it make sense to maintain a manual strip target like this? Could we run into cross-arch issues with the strip target, for example?

For Debian packages we should...:

 * Avoid stripping during build
 * Strip during install if DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS does not contain nostrip

More details - and example code - in Debian Policy v3.9.1 ยง4.9.1.

(too lazy to find a URL - I read /usr/share/doc/debian-policy myself)

Kind regards,
