I happened to notice, in the course of debugging something, that /usr/gnu/bin/ls was stripped.

While we don't want, for eg, DWARF data in the OS, the symbol tables of delivered ELF files should survive. Please stop stripping stuff? (I'm not quite sure how it's getting stripped, so this could be, to say the least, annoying to fix).

/usr/gnu/bin/ls has ".SUNW_ldynsym", ".dynsym". What else do you need?

#2 Updated by Rich Lowe about 6 years ago

As I said: the symbol table. (.symtab)
