Mattias Andrée 609169d600 install: ignore -s
The -s flag previously called strip(1) on the installed file.
This patch changes install(1)'s behaviour to ignore -s.

Many makefiles use the -s flag, so it has to be recognised for
compatibility, however it does not have to do anything because
symbols do not negatively affect the functionallity of binaries.

Ignoring -s have the added benefit that the user do not need
to edit makefiles if they want the symbols that are useful for
debugging. If the user wants to strip away symbols, it can be
done manually or automatically by the package manager.

Laslo: Update the man-date and remove -s from usage()

Quentin Rameau bd88854850 install: treat target as file by default instead of dir
When using 'install foo bar', bar should be treated as a file copy of
foo, not a directory to be created and into which install foo.
