Do you also set COPTS=-g?  MKDEBUG shouldn't affect optimization,
only whether the debug symbols go into /usr/libdata/debug or the
binaries themselves.

As long as we can only afford one set of builds per architecture,
I think it should be with the default settings, whathever they

I do run periodic automated tests of the i386 ports with COPTS=-g
on my personal testbed.  The results are here:

I encourage others to do the same for other ports.  It would also
be helpful to have volunteers running periodic builds with other
non-default settings such as DIAGNOSTIC or LOCKDEBUG, and on
non-NetBSD hosts.

Alas, this was done without adding support for installing debug.tgz
to sysinst.  Because of this, I had to *remove* MKDEBUG=yes from my
testbed configuration to get working debug symbols again.

Christos - any progress on fixing that?
