Note with gcc-4.8:
DWARF4 is now the default when generating DWARF debug information. When -g is used on a platform that uses DWARF debugging information, GCC will now default to -gdwarf-4 -fno-debug-types-section.
Any comments? You have ~12 hours...
I will use "-g -fvar-tracking-assignments" if no-one comments otherwise.
What are the consequences here for packages? Does this increase package size by a large margin and will it slow down programs a lot? (Maybe break it down for people who are not that familiar with gcc and its new features; maybe you'll get more feedback then)
I will re-post this link then: http://gcc.gnu.org/onlinedocs/gcc/Debugging-Options.html
It theoretically should do nothing to the package. These options just ensure somewhat useful debugging symbols are generated during compile (which would slow down), but there are all removed during stripping...
