Not sure about the "accelerate the port search on port resolution".
Here's a quote from Seth's (the maintainer) site:

     To throw out the useful comments in generated files (useful for embedded
     installations), use:

	make STRIP=yes

He doesn't mention anything about acceleration. He says it's
useful for embedded systems. Do you have a URL of this thread?
