[linux-dvb] Large DVB modules

I still have this problem with mercurial tree from today.

Is there any trick? I simply do a make / make install in v4l-dvb tree

I checked the Makefiles. The only place I found the use of strip was in
v4l/Makefile:

#################################################
# Old instalation rule

old-install:: rminstall
	@echo -e "\nInstalling new V4L modules at $(DEST)..."

	@strip --strip-debug $(inst-m)

	-install -d $(DEST)
	-install -m 644 -c $(inst-m) $(DEST)

	/sbin/depmod -a ${KERNELRELEASE}

#################################################

But why is it called "old"?

How does the script v4l/scripts/make_makefile.pl  work?
