Note that I've add an -g to CFLAGS so there will be correct debug
information attached.

--enable-debug, though it's name might be confusing, is really only for
developer for debugging purpose. It will write logs to /tmp thus leaking
private data and shouldn't be enabled by default.

Please close this bug if you agree.
