Description of problem:
In many programes I've tried compiling, the -g option does not work. I have
to remove this option to make the prog. work correctly. After doing that
the programe compiles.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. download samba-tng or cyrus-imapd or midgard (www.midgard-project.org)
2. ./configure ..
3. make

Actual Results:  I get an errormessage saying "-g option not supported" or

Expected Results:  make should run normally.

Can you please provide exact error messages from which it will be clear which
program complains about what and if possible command which was used for it.
gcc certainly supports -g, I use it every day and a big part of the distribution
is built with -g too (and stripped where needed).
