title="Split debug symbols for pkgsrc builds similar to redhat"
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
Most parts of this project were done during Google Summer of Code 2016 as part of
[Split debug symbols for pkgsrc builds](https://summerofcode.withgoogle.com/projects/#5193596953165824)
project. However, in order to be properly integrated in pkgsrc it will need to
support [[multipkg|projects/project/pkgsrc-multipkg]], some little adjustements
and more testing in the wild.
