This patch goes along with the patch I've sent to the gdb folks, to
change the format of compressed debugging sections.  I now store the
uncompressed length in the section proper, rather than in the section
name, so files will have dependable section names.

In the process of doing this, I noticed some brokenness in the
testsuite Makefiles for testing this feature.
