      Description

      For our static builds, building with this flag represents a significant savings in debug info size: 20% or more.

      We had looked at this flag a number of years ago and decided against it because it appeared that there were many tools that were not yet ready to handle it, but that problem has most likely aged out.

      There is also some controversy within RedHat about whether -fdebug-types-section should be used while building, or whether dwz should be used to post-process the debug files. The former is much easier for us to achieve.
