The configure.ac template is -O0, and thus the configure script produced
by autoconf is also -O0.
For the current Fedora and EPEL builds configure.ac is patched to -O2 as
part of the build process.
We discussed at the community architecture planning meeting in July that
going forward we would leave it -O0 for x.y.0 and x.y.1 releases and
switch to -O2 for x.y.2 and later releases. (Although I haven't made
that change for Fedora and EPEL yet.)
But note that for RPMs anyway, everything _is_ actually compiled with
-g; the debug symbols are stripped from the binaries after the debuginfo
RPM is produced. Off hand I'm not sure there's a lot of value in adding
and --enable-debug option — just install the debuginfo RPMs instead if
you want to debug.
