Indeed you do and indeed you can't.
However, I don't consider the latter to be a real pressing problem - after
all, we're talking about compiling a piece of software in a way that
facilitates *debugging* - it's bad enough when I (as a kde maintainer) see no
other choice but to tell you, the user (when you've reported a problem - say
a crash - to me), to recompile the whole damn thing with some switch intended
for developers so I can figure out what the problem is.

I don't deserve the credit for that idea (I don't really remember who came up
with it, IIRC obrien@). ;-)
