Umm, that's not quite what I meant. :)

"any binaries created should include debugging information", please
see <http://www.debian.org/doc/debian-policy/ch-files#s10.1>. Failing
to comply with this part of Policy will warrant a bugreport, so what I
meant was: please take care that the CFLAGS from your previous
debian/rules get passed on correctly.
