I've had bad time finding out why the hell I can't set breakpoints 
inside shared library in gdb. Finally I've found out shared objects
created by <> have local symbols stripped - the line in
makefile looks like this:

	@${LD} -x -r ${.TARGET}.o -o ${.TARGET}

is there any good reason for this ? Has -x any other good side effect I can't
see ?

It is better never to have been born.  But who among us has such luck?
One in a million, perhaps.
