Description Adam Halim cendio 2024-02-21 15:36:38 CET
When doing bug 8300, we had issues with one package (bazel) which compiled a
binary consisting of multiple binaries. When building binaries this way, it
seems like stripping debug information breaks the binary, making it unusable.

Fedora's documentation [1] says to undefine _enable_debug_packages to disable
debuginfo processing:
> %undefine _enable_debug_packages
While this works for normal RPM packages, it does not work for packages in
cenbuild. The workaround that currently works is to instead do the following:
> %define _cendio_debug_package %{nil}
Ideally, we would want our .spec files and macros to behave the same way inside
cenbuild as outside.
