Just tell them to 'make install-strip' rather than 'make install'.

Please show numbers and glibc version to prove that your vim really
loads slower when not stripped, you can use
  time vim -c :q

the runtime loader does not map the debug sections so it should not
have any impact.  Besides, disk space is cheap nowadays, for excessive
debug symbol sizes on sane systems like GNU/Linux one should file
compiler/linker bugs.
