Sorry I guess I misquoted. Feel free to warn (for now) but don't append it anyway, otherwise the eclass is simply not usable in some contexts. Unfortunately I've seen too many packages out there where --disable-debug still enables it (broken AC_ARG_ENABLE), or where --disable-debug stops _every_ symbol emission (which is almost never what you want), or where --enable-debug stops the whole optimisation (which again is almost never what you want).... -- Diego Elio Pettenò — Flameeyes http://blog.flameeyes.eu/
