The -g option during compiling _and_ linking should be enough.  For g++,
you could use -gstabs+.

What exactly did you do in xxgdb?  If you get a segmentation fault while
running the program, try the `where' command to see where  the program
was when it crashed.  The debugger will not stop a program from
crashing, it will (among other things) let you inspect the status of the
program when it crashes.
