Yeah, build scripts should not be calling /usr/bin/strip directly, and in the end, then will all eventually need fixing. I often have to fix things like that to make builds use the newer cctools on older systems.

I haven’t explored what "xcrun —find” does re: finding our cctools port as yet...

I actually thought Josh’s (or was it your) idea to run a codesign fixup step in base after the build was done sounded like the best idea to me, but there are probably ports that do something funky in “post-destroot” or somewhere that would show up warts.
