I'm making distro for MIPS architecture, where some package had 
$install -s option set, and met the problem that host machine(x86)'s strip
was used, and made this wish entry. 
My current workaround for this problem is, like you said, to create a patch
to take off -s option from install command... hummm...

In my case, binutils command, including strip has prefix, like:
mips-unknown-linux-{strip,ar,as,ld,...} so this doesn't work for me...
(except if I make symbolic link...)
