Re: lib/54449: _pic.a libraries contain unwanted debug information

Historically the libfoo.a libraries never had debugging symbols, this is why we have the libfoo_g.a variant which is controlled by ${MKDEBUGLIB}.
Building a system with DBG=-g to get the same effect (putting debugging info in libfoo.a) was never guaranteed to work.

The fact that libfoo_pic.a ended up with debugging symbols looks like an accident to me.
In any case, I am not dogmatic about it and let's decide how we want it to work and fix it.
