    Autotools: optimize with -Og when debugging
    When debug (-g) is enabled (default when compiling a development
    version), the existing -O optimization level is not correct, since
    many variables are optimized out when debugging.
    Use -Og instead, and condition not on compiling a development version,
    but on --enable-debug. This is the same by default, but it more
    precise in our case.
