Yes - my scripts are pretty rough. We need a more conventient method.
Carl, may I ask you to add your notes to
cvs -z3 co web
will get the pages to you.

I am not sure - I had disabled LDFLAGS="". In the head file is written
CC = gcc
LEX = flex
COMPILE_FLAGS = -g -gstabs
There is no "-s", also not in the script (see latest CVS version):
CFLAGS="-g -gstabs" LDFLAGS="" ./configure --prefix=...
Still there are no debugging symbols.
GNU gdb 2002-04-01-cvs
This GDB was configured as "arm-linux"...(no debugging symbols found)...
There must be another trick.
