Now if I want to turn DEBUG off for a particular port, would I use: 1) WITH_DEBUG 2) WITH_DEBUG= 3) WITH_DEBUG="" One other question. From what I have been reading, the use of 'WITH_DEBUG' also prevents the stripping of debug code when the program is installed. Is that correct, or do I have to use another flag to insure that debug code is not stripped from the installed program?
