cygport debug junk

My cygport is 0.10.11-1.  I haven't run cygport in a while, and now I'm trying
to compile a new package.  When I do, by default it seems that I get

CC = "gcc -c -ggdb -O2 -pipe

and the install target then creates a bunch of (IMO) debug junk in
/usr/lib/debug and /usr/src/debug.

Try as I might, I can't seem to get rid of all of that stuff.  I've tried
forcing CC=gcc in the Makefile, and some other things, but I can't seem to get
rid of all of the debug products.  It's nothing having to do with the Makefile,
which is simple and doesn't include any -ggdb etc.

Is this a change that's been made recently in cygport?  Can it be easily turned
off?  Or, could someone suggest where '-ggdb -O2 -pipe' etc might be coming
from?  I grepped through /usr/share/cygport for that, and found that
compilers.cygclass uses it, but I don't include that in my cygport script
