First of all, note that --enable-symbols is a misnomer. It is not
per-se about any kind of symbols (like not stripping internal symbols on
ELF, etc.), but rather about debugging information. (With GCC it
enables -g "Produce debugging information"
(or -g2, -ggdb2), with MSVC it enables /Zi "enable debugging
information" ["cl /?" output].)
My main concern for assert-enabled (i.e., --enable-dbgutil) builds is
that if they abort, it is easy to get a decent backtrace. For that, it
is important that internal symbols are not stripped, but much less so
that --enable-symbols--controlled debugging information is available.
Therefore, I have no decided opinion either on whether --enable-dbgutil
should imply --enable-symbols by default.
