[Freewx-maint] Bug#655251: wxwidgets2.8: debug packages are useless to gdb

Package: libwxgtk2.8-dbg
Severity: important

With both -dbg packages installed, gdb still cannot provide any
sourceline information in backtraces.

Looks like for some reason the provided files are shipped in
/usr/lib/$ARCH with special names, instead of /usr/lib/$ARCH/debug
with the original name.  Symlinking them from /usr/lib/$ARCH/debug
does not appear to work, though.

How are those packages supposed to be used at all ?  The lone
decade-old /usr/share/doc/libwxbase2.8-0/README.Debian makes me
suspicious it has nothing to do with the modern infrastructure in
/usr/lib/debug.  Would it please be possible to replace those packages
with the expected feature ?
