Well, the idea is to *just* add -g to the flags without modifying any 
other flags, and *just* remove -Wl,-S from LDFLAGS without removing 
other flags.  Changing other flags will change the generated binaries 
which may affect reproducibility of certain bugs and/or performance 
profile of the executable, and I'd like to avoid that (if we can).
