that's completely wrong as well. the -dbg packages are built at the asme 
time as the other packages (I even explained rouglhy how this was done) 
so if you pick packages from the same distribution at a given time, you 
will have -dbg and the applications that match.

the -dbg packages depends upon the applications they contains the symbol 
of anyway.

the -dbg are not installed by default because even if it does not use a 
single byte of memory, they take a lot of disk space.
