If you use -ggdb, gcc will attempt to link in libg instead of libc.
However, I didn't include libg in libc5-dev since it's huge. I can
either add a symlink in libc5-dev from libg.a to libc.a or I can make
a new package libc5-dbg (?) with libg.a. If I did the latter, I would
probably also move the profiling libc from libc5-dev to the new
