I think it is legal, here to. Otherwise, I would be confessing to
committing a crime (aiding a static library to break the law) <grin/>.

Thats my guess too.
Although I suspect strip, might be buggy, too, as it should give a
better error message.
Johan> How does it fail?
See the very bottom (the first two messages aren't so interesting) of:
<URL:http://bugs.debian.org/73637>, this is the bug I reported against
Basically, I get the error:
 [snoopy:bam] ~/build/heimdal-0.3c >strip --strip-debug debian/heimdal-dev/usr/lib/libsl.a
strip: debian/heimdal-dev/usr/lib/stOptMMV/libeditline.a: Invalid operation
which seems to me like it is trying to extract the internal library,
so it can strip it, but something goes wrong and it fails.
