+- coreutils: use make install-strip to install the packages. For now,
+  it fails beause even if we pass STRIP="/path/to/$(ARCH)-strip", the
+  coreutils build system uses the host strip to strip target
+  binaries. The ./configure execution done by Buildroot properly
+  detects the cross-strip, but when running make, build-aux/missing
+  gets run, complains about aclocal-1.10c and atuomake-1.10c not being
+  present, and rerun the configuration... with the wrong environment
+  variables (STRIP= is missing). An autoreconf on this package is
+  probably necessary.
