How to produce debugging symbols?

I have a rather general question on debugging.
I'm experiencing some problems with some programs on FreeBSD 5.0.
Because I'm quite a unix newbie, I can only write to some mailinglists
to ask if somebody knows what to do.
But I would like to take a few steps to solve my problems on my own. I
read something about gdb and kernel debugging, but find that somehow
disturbing. So I would like to ask a very *stupid* newbie question:
I can run a program within gdb, but I don't see the program's source
code. I assume this is meant with debug symbols? How can I compile a
program with those debug symbols?
Any help appreciated!
