Looking at man ld shows option:
Omit all symbol information from the output file.
Specifying -link-opt -s to MLton seems to have the same effect as
compiling with MLton and then separately stripping the executable.
Perhaps -s should be specified by default and omitted when -debug true
is explicitly specified.
Looking at man as shows option:
Remove local absolute symbols from the outgoing symbol table.
I haven't tested what the effect of using that option with MLton is,
but if it reduces the amount of data that goes into the object files,
it might even slightly reduce compile/link time.
