This is to some extend already possible with with gcc (Thanks to guillem
for the idea). Add '-specs /usr/.../rb.spec' to CFLAGS and then set
inside the specs file debug-prefix-map based on an env var:

  + -fdebug-prefix-map=%:getenv(SOURCE_ROOT =.)

Unfortunately this is not that easy. The getenv function fails hard if
the env var is not set. And since the build environment for Debian
packages is mostly unconstrained there seems to be no way to guarantee
that this variable is always set.
