Yeah.  Nothing egregiously bad leaps out at me from this information.

You could try compiling big parts of your program with "-g1"
instead of "-g".  The default "-g" level is "-g2", which produces
much more debug info.

Also, in the future, maybe the linker could remove duplicate
information from dwarf-2 sections.
