Description of problem:
Can we have an option that turns off the automatic stripping of debug info and
whatnot from the executables that are built?

No matter. I just realised how to add debug information to gdb from the debug
files that rpmbuild now creates. Cool.

For peoples info - in case this gets searched on, just go to
/usr/lib/debug/usr/bin/ and find the debug file. Once you've invoked a gdb
session, all that you have to do is type in add-symbol-file <name>
