Trouble building JDK in debug mode

I'm using 10.9.5 OS X Mavericks and Netbeans IDE.

Well I just followed the wiki and did "gradle zips" in order to generate my
zip file. Then I extract the ZIP bundle into the JRE.

I'm quite sure I'm using my own jfxrt because I had a bug with JavaFX, then
I modified the source code to resolve it. I created the zip et unzipped it
in the JRE and the bug was gone. So that must prove that my modification
were considered.

Be still, I can't access to local variables in Netbeans. But shouldn't the
compilation be longer when compiling with debug enabled? Because I don't
see a difference in time nor in size (for jfxrt)..
