Ah, since my earlier email I've fixed the sdcc package under advice from 
another cross lib maintainer[0]. msp430-libc (and now sdcc) just set 
__os_install_post to brp-compress; I guess the advantage of sed-ing out only 
the strip-static-archive is that the native binaries get stripped. I'll try 
this for sdcc.

By the way, perhaps that %define should be changed to %global?
