        Description

        Use DWARF debug symbols for Linux 32-bit builds instead of STABS.

        The main arguments for using DWARF are:
          - STABS is deprecated in Oracle Solaris Studio 12.3 (the currently supported compiler)
          - STABS support in GCC/GDB is in maintenance mode.
          - Better support by Oracle Studio Performance Analyzer (the performance
            team have requested that we use DWARF v2 or later instead of STABS).
          - DWARF provides a better debugging experience for C++ compared to STABS.
