Bug#976462: tech-ctte: Should dbgsym files be compressed via objcopy --compress-debug-section or not?

dwz still can't process compressed debuginfo sections, I think.  It's
the reason why Fedora uncompresses all debuginfo sections.

It's also not clear to me which compression approach is to be used,
the GNU one or the ELF standard one.  I expect support for GNU to be a
bit more widespread in our world because it's been around for a bit
