There is a simple approach to this: `make install' as usual, package as
usual (without dependencies) but name that package
emacs-debug-blah-blah. Now run `strip` on Emacs binary directory and
proceed to do the normal packaging.

If the user wants to debug Emacs at the C level, he grabs
emacs-debug-blah-blah and unzips it on top of his current install.
