Hello, Matthew! 
Thank you a lot for your helpful answers, just a small note on 'strip':

"-S" doesn't help.
It seems that strip considers (some?) mzscheme strings as debugging information.
Stripped executable fails with: 
   open-input-string: expects argument of type <string>; given #<eof>
(tested on RedHat 7.3/Intel)

Well, 'stripping' is not so important nowadays, I just want to provide 
a warning.
