+- coreutils: use make install-strip to install the packages. For now,
+ it fails beause even if we pass STRIP="/path/to/$(ARCH)-strip", the
+ coreutils build system uses the host strip to strip target
+ binaries. The ./configure execution done by Buildroot properly
+ detects the cross-strip, but when running make, build-aux/missing
+ gets run, complains about aclocal-1.10c and atuomake-1.10c not being
+ present, and rerun the configuration... with the wrong environment
+ variables (STRIP= is missing). An autoreconf on this package is
+ probably necessary.
