I meant that the xen-unstable tree should set INSTALL to the
cross-install wrapper.

Presumably the xen-unstable tree calls $(CROSS_COMPILE)strip instead,
which works.  I agree that this is better but I don't want to have a
deviation from the upstream makefiles in qemu.

That can't be right.  Running something via a shell does not normally
reset the PATH.
