I wouldn't argue one way or the other about the logic of the default
action, but I do like having debugging off by default.  I'm really tired
of having to go into every makefile and removing those "-g"'s by hand as
you have to do with so many other "configure" packages.  In other words,
I prefer having to set "--enable-debug" in order to get debugging rather
than the other way around, i.e., having to set "--disable-debug" to turn
it off.  Someone totalling relying on configure shouldn't even have to know
what CFLAGS is much less what its contents might be, IMO.
