linux x64: gtest without debug symbols?

I may be missing something very obvious, but I am not able to debug the
gtest-libjvm (the one gtestLauncher uses, from

I build with --with-native-debug-symbols=external

In the build log I see that we preserve the debug information for the
standard with objcopy, but we don't for the gtest variant,
instead we strip the debug information.

Was that intentional?

Thanks, Thomas
