Hi there,

I think I found a bug in the script of the package. I'm using
slackware-current but I don't see how this matters in this case.

When I try to run id3.SlackBuild it stops in line 61 (the second "find"):

( cd $PKG
  find . | xargs file | grep "executable" | grep ELF | cut -f 1 -d : | \
    xargs strip --strip-unneeded 2> /dev/null || true
  find . | xargs file | grep "shared object" | grep ELF | cut -f 1 -d : | \
    xargs strip --strip-unneeded 2> /dev/null

The problem Is that the package does not create any libraries, so in
the above line the strip command fails and creates an error.

I think you should either completely remove the line from the script
or at least add a "|| true" in the end to let the script continue
after this.
Also, I don't really see any reason to have "|| true" in the previous
line. An executable should always be present in the package.
