Renamed from:

The static library is stripped, but still contains a section that is not useful. You should call strip with --remove-section=.comment --remove-section=.note to remove the .note and .comment sections.

dh_strip (after debhelper/9.20150811) will do this automatically for you, but install -s will not because it calls strip without any arguments.
