enable_debug set, but libraries (including translators) should be fine. I've 
been building that way (using rpmbuild) and successfully debugging translators 
all day today. On the very rare occasions that I want to debug the 
gluster{d,fs,fsd,shd} executable itself, I grab the unstripped version from

rpmbuild, but it seems like those wouldn't apply if you're just doing "make
