It indeed was kindof a stupid question - thanks to Matthieu Herrb for clueing
me in.

The crucial bit is: the module loader is now dlopen() based, so gdb will
just work.

Getting the debug info into the binary etc. is standard autoconf stuff. Maybe
we should add support for the global "debug" option to the modular-xorg
