Why main Makefile don't use INSTALL_PROGRAM, only INSTALL? It causes installed binaries to be not stripped.

Hello, Users.

 Now Makefile.in contains:

INSTALL_BIN = $(LIBTOOL) --mode=install $(INSTALL)

 And after configure it is expanded to:

INSTALL = /usr/bin/install -c -o root -g wheel
INSTALL_BIN = $(LIBTOOL) --mode=install $(INSTALL)

 It means, that all binaries are installed un-stripped. It is huge
 amount of unneeded (unless --enable-debug is provided) information,
 especially for static build. In case of dynamic build, all shared
 libraries are unstripped too.

 `configure' script defines INSTLAL_PROGRAM with additional `-m 555
 -s' options, but it is not used.

 Why is it done in such way? Could it be changed?

 Yes, I've search mailing list this time without any relevant results.
