As of r291955 userland debug files are built and installed by default, in order to facilitate debugging. They will be built as part of the release process (in FreeBSD 11) so that they can be made available for download either at install time, or later on to debug a core file after a crash. (Release builds currently require the use of all default options.)
The debug files will be located automatically by gdb or lldb, by following the ".gnu_debuglink" section in the binary or library. These files occupy additional disk space in the build object directory (e.g. /usr/obj) and in the install target filesystem (in /usr/lib/debug/...). If you do not want to build and install the debug files for any reason, add the following to /etc/src.conf: WITHOUT_DEBUG_FILES=YES I hope to refine the option further to provide separate control over building debug files for binaries and for libraries/rltd. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
