Interesting, is the Makefile.am DEBUGINFO_URLS unset not effective
enough?  There is little of the build worth checking, given that the
config option doesn't change any of the binaries.  If we wanted to
confirm that it works, a new check/*.sh script could manually source
the profile.d file and check that it's okay.  Was that what you had in
