Sigh. Make sure you *do not* really put my name in the Changelog, then,
because this is not at all what I was suggesting -- everyone who uses
make knows *what debugging symbols are for*.  

What they may not know, and what I did not know, was that *they do not
degrade performance* under normal conditions.  So congrats on a
pointless re-wording, hopefully someone can go through this again
later ;)
