making octave-forge on OS X -- "forced strip"?

        I found the INSTALL.MacOSX file that came with octave-forge quite
useful except for one line:

"Comment out forced strip command in extra/mex/Makefile"

Could someone tell me what a "forced strip command" is?  I've read
through that Makefile and I can't find any line that I could imagine
someone would call "forced strip."  Anyway, I built octave-2.1.40-1
using fink built from CVS sometime in the past couple days, and I
followed all the instructions in INSTALL.MacOSX for building
octave-forge except for the above-mentioned "forced strip" line.  After
a sane-looking run of the configure script, my attempts to make
octave-forge fail with the following messages:

g++ -c -no-cpp-precomp -I/sw/include -I/sw/include/octave-2.1.40
-I/sw/include/octave-2.1.40/octave -I/sw/include -g -O2 -Wall
-DHAVE_OCTAVE_21 -o mex.o In function `octave_value_list call_mex(callstyle, const
    octave_value_list&, int)': parse error before `*' token parse error before `*' token `argin' undeclared (first use this function) (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once for each
    it appears in.) `argout' undeclared (first use this function)
make[2]: *** [mex.o] Error 1
make[1]: *** [mex/] Error 2
make: *** [extra/] Error 2

Does the above sound like something that would be fixed if I commented
out the forced strip line, or am I doing something else wrong?  Google
searches on "forced strip", naturally, returned a list of porn sites.
If it matters, target system is a 12" PB running 10.2.4.
