The binaries contain debug symbols and in case of a crash a backtrace gets
saved in 'freeciv-server.RPT' or 'freeciv-gtk2.RPT' in the installation
directory already. For some reason the source file/line information is missing
in the client report, though. Even 'objdump -dSl' does not show it for the
client, but GDB does. So, we'd need at least the output of 'nm' or perhaps
'objdump -d' for the client to interpret the backtrace addresses. And somehow
communicate to the users to send the report files together with their bug
