Hi Stephanos,

>As you suggested, the debug information added by `--enable-target-optspace`
can be stripped, but why add it in the first place if it is not necessary?

Because many people want to be able to debug their code!

configuration option.

Currently the default for CFLAGS_FOR_TARGET is "-g -O2".
--enable-target-optspace Changes this to "-g -Os"

If -g is to be controlled by a separate option, then it should apply in both
cases. And this new option should probably be enabled by default to maintain
existing behaviour (so perhaps add a --disable-target-debug option that
removes -g)
