I suppose that's a question for the development team. However, note
the following:

root at rmlinux: /usr/bin: ls -l gimp-2.0
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root root 44840564 Mar 27 23:26 gimp-2.0

root at rmlinux: /usr/bin: strip --strip-unneeded -o gimp-2.0.stripped gimp-2.0

root at rmlinux: /usr/bin: ls -l gimp-2.0.stripped
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root root 2799364 Mar 28 09:43 gimp-2.0.stripped

This puts in more in line with your installation.
