Package: libboost-dbg
Version: 1.34.1-11
Severity: important

Hey Debian Boost Team,

The libboost-dbg package doesn't have any debug symbols for most of the
libraries that are shipping with libboost-*. It does have the "debug
versions" which are quite different to symbols (they include extra
asserts and such).

This makes it very hard to debug boost programs. I've included a patch
which enabled debug-symbols and then strips them into the libboost-dbg

The same procedure will probably work for boost 1.35 and 1.36.

Hope this helps,

Tim 'Mithro' Ansell
