This is a patch to install(1) which is really missing.  Just now my
installation of the latest openssh has gone wrong with the latest Cygwin
from CVS.  Here's what the OpenSSH Makefile does:

  $(INSTALL) -m 0755 $(STRIP_OPT) ssh $(DESTDIR)$(bindir)/ssh

And, btw., it would certainly *not* hurt if strip would get the
same patch.  Dave, you volunteered to send a binutils patch upstream?
