Actually you need to build with debug symbols enabled (-g with gcc and g++).

There won't be any difference on the final binary package if you use
-g, since dh_strip will remove the debug symbols.

Compiling with debug symbols is good, since we can use
DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS=nostrip and create a package for debug purposes
(when dh_strip finds "nostrip", it won't remove the debug symbols).

So it's unnecessary to remove the -g flag from the Makefile.

Also, you are hardcoding the CXXFLAGS in your patch, that is also not
good (for example, the noopt option won't work; your package will
always be compiled with -O2, instead -O0).

The best thing to do is to use
on line 26 of your debian/rules, and include all the needed flags on
the beginning, where you define CFLAGS (it should be CXXFLAGS).

And "dch -r" is your friend and it will updated the UNRELEASED entry
in changelog to unstable ;-)
