No, it's because of the find $PKG | xargs... strip ...  lines - one
of them must not find anything (which is odd, because there were no
errors when I tested/approved that initially), so the script exits.

It's for that reason that I'm back to using subshells for things
like that - the whole idea behind Pat sending all output of the strip
lines to /dev/null is that it doesn't matter if there's an error.
Live and learn...  :)
