emacs with debugging symbols on debian

I'd like to do some debugging on emacs on debian.  What's the simplest
way to get the build I'm used to, but with debugging symbols?

I'm using the emacs sources from debian 23-3-1.  Let's just build it
and see if this is because of strip, or because of missing -g.

Yep, I see the gcc console lines flying by and they definitely have -g.

Simplest way seems to be to install from the generated .deb files an
then just copy the non-stripped emacs binary from debian/build-x/src/emacs
