[Bug binutils/2462] New: -Wl, -s doesn't strip everything in

As H. J. Lu told me, I'm opening a bug report.

I'm using Slackware -current and some time ago decided to upgrade to
because it ships with

What happens is that, whenever I compile something with -Wl,-s added in LDFLAGS
or another place in the Makefile, so that it strips the binaries/libraries and I
don't have to use strip(1), the final sizes are different. With the old version,
there's nothing left to strip if I use -Wl,-s. With the new version, if I use
strip(1), it strips something, and the final sizes are then the same and
md5sum(1) matches. This is with GCC 3.4.6 (also was with 3.4.5) on x86.

I have some small binaries from udev 0.87 if someone wants to take a look. I'm
very clueless about it and what may be causing it.
