Thank you. That was embarrassingly the case.
Now to the root of my confusion: Autotools used to generate a stripped 
and a debug version.
I could run the debugger: gdb .lib/a.exe and the debug information were 
That seems to fail now.

The generated Makefile has a line that is commented:
#am__append_1 = -Wall -Wextra -ggdb -O0
am__append_2 = -O2

Could that have anything to do with my missing debug information?
Anybody else stumbled across this issue?
