make install-strip and -g

I noticed that some packages include the 'make install-strip'.  If it's 
available, should we be using it instead of 'make install'?  

If we are going to recommend stripping globally, can we protect the 
exceptions (I remember one documented in the mailing list somewhere)?

On the same lines, do we try our best to stop the -g flag?  I think Bruce is 
in favor of this and I'm not against it in principal, but I have not done 
it or tested it in practice, especially with unset CFLAGS.
