      Strip libraries at install/copy time. Never strip libraries in build directory. · 7ef72b31
      Thomas Miedema authored
      Two changes:
        * strip static libraries (.a files) at install/copy time, instead of
          at build time. Note that Cabal strips shared libraries (.so files)
          and executables at install/copy time also.
          This is needed for GHC, because it uses Cabal (via ghc-cabal copy)
          to install the boot libraries, and relies on Cabal to take of
          library stripping. Currently .so files indeed get properly stripped,
          but .a files do not.
          (Stripping static libraries at build time was introduced in
          60409cb9, with the explanation:
          "Call 'stripLib' from createLibArchive so that it's done only
          This bug (if you want to call it that) partially explains the
          difference in size of a GHC installation before and after manual
          stripping, reported in

          (The other parts are that the GHC build system currently doesn't
          strip executables on installation:
, and neither are the
          RTS library stripped, since they don't go through Cabal).
        * never strip the copy of a library in the build directory. Only
          strip the copy that is installed. Note that Cabal never strips
          executables in the build directory either.
          This might speed up compilation of a package under development,
          since stripping won't be performed for every 'cabal build'. It is
          also consistent with the GNU coding standards for 'install-strip':
            "install-strip should not strip the executables in the build
            directory which are being copied for installation. It should only
            strip the copies that are installed."

      Don't check metadata of installed .a file · e18ad75a
      Thomas Miedema authored
      When running the `strip` command (without the -D option) on an installed
      .a file, `strip` will write the current time to all file headers in the
      .a file. Update the DeterministicAr test to allow this.
      The DeterministicAr test is supposed to test for regressions in
      relinking avoidance. It is sufficient to do so in the build directory
