You lost me there. --enable-debug leads to -g3 without optimization, for reliable
step-by-step debugging in gdb and backtraces. So, like everyone who compiles
kdelibs with debug enabled, I'm among the developers who benefit from an 
optimization like the one this thread is about; and this has nothing to do 
with -Wall does it? --enable-debug enables warnings too iirc, but how is that
What do you expect? That everyone has two versions of kdelibs compiled,
one with debug for debugging and one without debug for more performance
and seeing all warnings? I don't think this is realistic.
