No, I was merely assuming that -gdwarf-4 is good enough to debug Emacs;
-gdwarf-5 is still marked as "experimental" in GCC 8's doc, and I
haven't used -gdwarf-5. If there's a significant advantage to using
-gdwarf-5 then discussion of it should be added to etc/DEBUG. In the
meantime I tried to improve the wording about this, in the attached patch.
