I've been anticipating doing this myself--rebuilding everything with
those options set, not just /bin/sh. I've built a /bin/sh with -g
(and a stale -mcpu=supersparc in mk.conf). Stripped, it's not too
bad for size. It's passed the first hurdle (building pkgtools/digest).
Once I've confirmed that the debug-built sh is probably OK, I'll turn
the machine loose on the system sources again...
