Sorry, my answer was too short ;-)
The patch basically rewrites the debug.m4 file. It collects all debug relating
code of the configure process and puts it in this file. The second patch
changes the handling of --enable-debug=yes to include nearly all checks but
the check which results in a compile error for gtk2. This check can be
activated using --enable-debug=checks.
The question is, if this is a configuration as you asked?
