I'm not 100% sure of the difference between our 'fastdebug' and out
'debug' builds, but one thing I do know: Linux_x64-debug isn't
currently done due to _really_ excessive size on the symbol tables and
associated output libary. IIRC, libjvm.so ends up being 1GB+ in size if
we do a 'debug' build on linux 64-bit (this was particularly noticable
on IA64 [itanium], but is also pronounced on x86_64).
This may or may not have anything to do with the lack of -g being
present in the makefiles. But, I thought you should know.
