 Due to a configuration oversight on the build cluster, MKDEBUG was not
 turned on for -8 builds upto 8.0 RC1.
 The ISO images have been changed to no contain the debug sets though,
 as this gets most of them down below the CD-ROM size shreshold.
 The USB images (which have no such tight limit) include full debug info
 now (this will be re-evaluated post 8.0 release).
 Now a few ISOs for architectures with COMPAT files are still overflowing
 the CD size. These are: evbarm* (no chance for CD, was that way in RC1
 already) and amd64 (by a few MB).
 For amd64 (and a few others architectures) I plan to switch compression
 to xz, which reduces the size of the binary sets by ~40% and gives
 quite some space.
 All of this has been the state for HEAD builds for a long time and nobody
 complained - but then it is -current and most users probably update
 from source or via manual download of the sets.
