You probably are.  My OpenBSD 2.8 (patched from cvs) says:

odin@leia:p2[~]% what `which strip`
        $OpenBSD: crt0.c,v 1.3 1997/06/24 17:15:49 tholo Exp $
         Copyright (c) 1988 Regents of the University of California.
        $OpenBSD: strip.c,v 1.13 2000/10/12 10:15:38 art Exp $

... and "strip -V" just returns an error.

998 characters, and SHOULD be no more than 78 characters, excluding
the CRLF."       -- rfc2822 - Internet Message Format
