At first I replied just to Harald by mistake, sorry for that. I also did a wrong analysis: I read the diff the other way around and I though "Oh, the Debian mode adds -g and -O2, which are things that we want".
But after finding that I read it the other way around I was puzzled until I thought this could be the solution: * -O2 is removed to let dpkg-buildflags use whatever we decide in Debian should be used. * -g is removed not because we don't want debugging symbols, but because we might not want them everywhere. A simple example could be WebKit, it's simply impossible to build it with -g on i386. So that's my take on the issue :-/ -- Simulations are like miniskirts, they show a lot and hide the essentials.
