[Lazarus] Build Lazarus without symbols included?

I am never ever going to debug Lazarus itself since I am just a user,
so it makes no sense to inflate the size of the Lazarus executable
with the symbols...
Every time I rebuild Lazarus symbols are added to the binary and I
have to remember to close lazarus and issue the strip -s command to
reduce its size (by a lot).
Same happens when I install Lazarus/Fpc on a new RaspberryPi (I always
do this from svn sources). So also here I would like to skip the strip
step if possible. But I use a script to do the install and it contains
the strip command so in this case it is not as important...
Is there a setting somewhere in Lazarus that will build lazarus itself
without the symbols, but still create symbols in projects built using
