Are you getting this error while using the command makepkg in ArchLinux.
"==> ERROR: Cannot find the strip binary required for object file stripping."
It is easy to fix, just install the "binutils" package.
Go to your terminal and type
$ sudo pacman -S binutils
or if you are root just
# pacman -S binutils
If you then hit the error message
"make: command not found
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
It's because you don't have the the program make, also it needs the gc compiler, guile, and probably libatomic_ops
Install them just by tiping
$ sudo pacman -S make
Then make will pull its dependencies and install the rest of the packages needed.
Now, go back to your first command you typed "makepkg" and makepkg will find the strip binary for the creation of the package.
Thanks for your visit.
