The original problem is that someone decided a while back that they'd change
autoconf so anytime it recognized gcc as the compiler, it would add the -g
option.  Normally I'd build w/o -g for beta code and install it without
stripping (so I can get a useful walkback).  Adding the -g option will
certainly get a "useful" walkback - as well as a lot of debug information
that is useless if you've discarded the source tree.
