Hm, no really strong opinion on that one, but at least this is the
rationale - a non-product build is there to have compile-time extra
debug / sanity checks in it, like for example stlport debug - and
individual stuff, usually specific to subsystems or applications. 

At least for the code that I know, those have been proven quite
helpful at times, nicely complementing valgrind (by e.g. pointing
out mem clobberage that went into already-allocated areas, and was
thus not noticed by valgrind). And for me, --enable-dbgutil builds,
on the platform I work on.

Now, you prolly don't want this debug code shipped, since it adds
substantial overhead (at times) - ideally, we'd have unit tests for
all those things now handled by in-line debug code, but we're not
quite there yet, so I'd be a bit reluctant with axing non-pro ...

My 2 cents,
