Don't know where the -v came up, is that the default in dag's packages or
do you have valgrind aliased to valgrind -v ?

This is not a fatal error, just valgrind informing that the library
does not have debuginfo in the file nor has corresponding *debuginfo*
package installed.  valgrind only prints this with -v.
It is always better to have debuginfo for analysis by valgrind,
because then more accurate information can be provided, but it
is certainly not a requirement.
