--compress_debug, --no_compress_debug

This option causes the linker to compress .debug_* sections, if it is sensible to do so. This removes some redundancy and reduces debug table size. Using --compress_debug can significantly increase the time required to link an image. Debug compression can only be performed on DWARF3 debug data, not DWARF2.


The default is --no_compress_debug.
