How difficult would it be to allow DEBUG to be set during runtime like
GNU's can with LD_DEBUG? I have found GNU's LD_DEBUG to be very useful
for userland debugging, especially when using dlopen(3).

We have LD_DEBUG environment variable but it only prints if built with
-DDEBUG.

Is there a concern about performance by enabling this based only on
environment?
