They are built without any -g option. Some (jaxp, for example) use -g
but not all. Looking at jdk/make/Setup.gmk, from jdk.tar.xz, the calls
of the SetupJavaCompiler macro are all missing -g from FLAGS. The CORBA
stuff is also built without it.
There’s no single variable used by all of them where we could just add
-g so this… is going to be tricky. Ideally, you’d ask upstream to change
this for the next 8u? Is this possible?
