There is no notion of "Debug" vs. "Release" when building with GCC.
There are only static vs. dynamic libraries and exes, all of 'em
optimized, none of 'em debuggable.

But cmake has a notion of this. CMake supports operations
like LINK_FLAGS(?) that can be qualified with the build type.

They don't currently work outside of MSVC. I believe someone made a feature request to have them work generally. Can't remember the status of that.

Do you actually want debug builds of GCC stuff? It doesn't look like they ever previously existed in Chicken, so why now? I think shipping Debug on MSVC is just a matter of cultural expectation, not actual need. If you don't have at least Debug and Release directories, the MSVC crowd will look at you funny.
