Apples and oranges. You are speaking of the strip command. The OP was
regarding the 'gcc -s' command, which just passes '-s' to ld. Ld -s says
... HOLY CRAP! It says --strip-all. We should be passing -S

I'm afraid I'll have to hit some more (obscure) docs myself to see if
"strip all" means the same in ld as it does in strip.

Good catch there!
