Summary: no, besides -g in CFLAGS in make.conf we also need
STRIP=, to stop the symbol tables from being stripped. However
that isn't going to help, because we have to track a completely
different "developer" GNOME repository in order to get something
that will actually dump a core when it bombs...
I'm afraid that last part sounds like too much trouble for this
marginally interested user. Sorry.
