This is a bit weird. The 'strings' utility is not in any util-linux official sources. I looked here:
Refer also here:
The 'strings' utility is in the official 'binutils' package source, and this is what all distros (except for Slackware) use. Slackware renames it to 'strings-GNU'.
I was tempted to renamed 'strings-GNU' as 'strings', as this is the standard utility that all other distros use.
However, I went with 01micko's suggestion, and modified the template of 'util-linux' to grab /usr/bin/strings if it exists.
