description="""
recent rpmbuild for redhat creates a second rpm for later install containing debug symbols.

This is a very convenient system for having symbols available for debugging but not
clogging up the system until crashes happen and debugging is required.

The end result of this project should be a mk.conf flag or build target (debug-build) which
would result in a set of symbol files gdb could use, and which could be distributed with
the pkg.
