It's recommended that stuff is compiled with "-g -O2", right? It's not.
This is one line from the build log:

   gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. -I.. -I. -I.. -I../intl -DLOCALEDIR=\"/usr/share/locale\"    -W -Wall -Wbad-function-cast -Wcast-align -Winline -Wmissing-declarations -Wmissing-prototypes -Wnested-externs -Wshadow -Wstrict-prototypes -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -O2 -Wall -c domainname.c

See, no -g.

Very strange. I've checked configure in that directory, and it has the



if test "`cd $srcdir && pwd`" != "`pwd`" && test -f $srcdir/config.status; then
  { echo "configure: error: source directory already configured; run "make distclean" there first" 1>&2; exit 1; }
cat >> confdefs.h <<EOF
#define PACKAGE 1

cat >> confdefs.h <<EOF
#define VERSION 1

Maybe this is a result of the potato automake, which Wichert told me could
be installed on slink without any problems? That was necessary for the
build of lpr_0.46-1-0slink1.

I have autoconf 2.12-13, automake 1.4-2.

Not always :-)  That much was clear from what I had included.
