What kind of confusion will removing "ffmpeg_g" from the build folder
bring? It's never installed, and what does get installed by "make
install" will not change with this patch in form or name.
This patch does for the binaries the same thing we're doing for the
libraries: Strip during install, instead of making a stripped duplicate
in the build folder.
