DDB? Debugging kernel?

OK, folks - I've looked in the Handbook, and I've looked in
_The Complete FreeBSD_ and I just get more confused.
Is the option DDB gone? If so, how do you get ddb functions
like db_readline into the kernel? _The Complete FreeBSD_ still
describes it, but the handbook doesn't mention it, and a
"grep -i ddb *" in the conf directory comes up empty.
The handbook still talkes about "makeoptions DEBUG=-g", but
there's no such thing in NOTES or any other file in the
I'm going to try putting in the "makeoptions DEBUG=-g", though
it may do nothing.
The NOTES file also includes a somewhat cryptic remark about the
intel acpi code:
... (Note that the Intel code must also have USE_DEBUGGER
# defined when it is built).
I tried making that a kernel option, but config says it is not defined.
Well - it didn't choke on "option DDB," so maybe that still works,
even though it's not in the handbook or in the NOTES file...
