Since the OCaml native code compiler has produced DWARF information
for some time, I just started to build debuginfo packages.

For example:

But also:
which is a symlink to:

Obviously this prevents me from installing both debuginfo packages at

This only affects a few packages.  It looks as if the debuginfo being
produced is good -- as in, it's not empty and it works in gdb.
