Description of problem:
perl rpms install their lib data read-only. when the find-debuginfo.sh
script runs it tries to strip the files but can't leaving huge rpms in
many cases because of the debugging synbols. (found while developing
perl-Glib/perl-Gtk2, http://gtk2-perl.sourceforge.net/) the script's
call to eu-string prints an error message near the end of the build
process saying as much.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. building most any perl rpm seems to show this problem, perl-Glib.

Additional info:

brp-strip suffers from the same issue in rpm-4.3.1-0.3 issued with
Fedora Core 2. Found while building spamassassin-3.0-pre1, which uses
ExtUtils::Install to install ELF binary spamc mode 555:
