Description From cendio 2012-10-02 14:37:29
(moved from bug 2989)

We link a lot of stuff from the build system statically into our shipped
binaries. Therefore it could be useful to have debug packages for the build
system as well. Currently we can see symbols from the linked libraries, but not
the source code.

Bug 4929 makes sure that we at least build with the -g flag.

We've started producing debuginfo packages in r30461. This is done because gcc
has become huge and disk usage is becoming a real concern. No work has been
done to check that we have proper debug symbols, or that this helps gdb when
debugging binaries we ship.

Picked two random build system components (pcre, gnutls) for test. Incremented
revision in spec files for the components and started rebuild script.

Verified that staging/RPMS/debuginfo/ contined debuginfo packages for the two

Looks good.
