With pacman 4.1 just around the corner, we'll be getting support for split debug information soon.
I would like to recommend "-gdwarf-4 -fvar-tracking-assignments" as our default debug flags in makepkg.conf. These flags should allow for better debug information in the presence of optimization (less <value optimized out>; see man gcc).
This is probably a better reference than the man page: http://gcc.gnu.org/onlinedocs/gcc/Debugging-Options.html
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.
Maybe this is a good opportunity to talk about debug packages in general. Do we enable for all our packages? Are we adding them into extra directly or are we creating a special repository like [debug] ?
I will add a glibc-debug package so I can get rid of all the custom stripping and just have that as a dep for gcc/valgrind. I have no intention of adding debug packages for anything else (unless it becomes a distro policy to include them).
glibc is mandatory. I have a valgrind-multilib package in aur for the multilib one
