Code Sample
DESTDIR=<target> make install-strip

This morning I was compiling some very old versions of GNOME libraries (from 2002, 2003). The problem was, "DESTDIR=blabla make install" doesn't work.

After some googling, I tried reversing the order:
Code Sample
make install-strip DESTDIR=blabla
Now it works (for all affected packages).
