It seems worth trying.

By the way, I originally thought that debug info was left in the
binaries and a debug package separated it.  I think it's unfortunate not
to have debug info available (the GNU build default).  It presumably
should be available for something like openfoam, for people to build
parts of, anyhow.

It's easy (but not fast) to try again.
