Currently the strip is happening in the install target with the $(STRIP)
variable.  I suppose it would be possible to set $(STRIP) to "touch",
that would work with the current Makefile.

All of these pd packages that I am uploading use the same Makefile
template.  We wrote this Makefile with the expressed intention of making
it really easy to package properly.  So what is debhelper looking for in
order to have separate install and strip capabilities?
