Exherbo users and Gentoo scm users: this affects you now. Other Gentoo
users: this will be in the next major release (0.60.0).
The build_options: split and strip values are now gone. They've been
replaced by a single build_options: symbols value with a parameter. You
can set it in use.conf / options.conf like this:
*/* build_options: symbols=split
Legal values are:
compress: Split and compress debug symbols
preserve: Preserve debug symbols
split: Split debug symbols
strip: Strip debug symbols
You'll be able to see these in 'cave show', and the docs on the website
will be updated with the release.
It's ok to specify both the old and the new values before or after you
The mappings from old values to new values are:
-split -strip preserve
split strip split
-split strip strip
split -strip didn't make sense, so you shouldn't have it
The new 'compress' value is like 'split', except that it also
compresses debug sections, which can save an awful lot of space. This
needs a recent binutils (184.108.40.206.4), and will break older gdb.
