That's a very strange thing. All the other libraries in the same package
have the .gnu_debuglink section. And the debuginfo package was built with
the same timestamp ... I don't know if this was removed intentionally by
SuSE ... I do not have the SRPM of that package, so I will check with recent
Anyway, as I said in my previous mail, objcopy did the job, and it works!
