I fixed things up so that my --enable-dbgutil build compiled and linked. But it is entirely possible that this then broken stuff for a build with just --enable-debug or debug=true but not --enable-dbgutil.

I added a patch that should refine the work started by tml and others

The patch changes some of the DBG_UTIL to OSL_DEBUG_LEVEL, so they won't
break the build with debug=true.

Though a couple of warning popped up while building in debug mode.
