binutils/sstrip: remove
sstrip has been obsoleted for a while now, as it's still broken for some archs, and there seems to be no incentive to fix it upstream. Besides, the space gained with sstrip is marginal at best.

- help
- The sstrip utility, to maximise the striping of ELF binaries
- (executables and libraries).
- Buildroot version, forked off the original from ELFkickers.
- This one is somewhat maintained by the buildroot guys.
- Supports big-endian systems.
- NOTE! Please read.
- sstrip is now deprecated in crosstool-NG, as it has a few
- shortcomings. For example: it breaks for PPC targets, it
- does not build on non-ELF hosts (eg. mingw32, MacOS-X...).
