Yes, but it's complete and utter crap; it was then and still is now.
Ben ran a buildd on vore which is one of the faster buildds, but I've
run both vore and some of our slower (arm, m68k) buildds and I can
guarantee you that the additional time incurred by using '-g' is so
insignificant it's insulting to have to even discuss it.

The whole -g thing really ought to be fixed; it snuck in AFAICS/R
bypassing the proper policy procedure, and is, in any event, entirely
