> I opened the review specifically for comment this entry. I suspect this is just a misinterpretation of what GDB does, but I wanted confirmation that nothing in the Linux world actually expects this before I remove it.
Searching for the path
"/usr/lib/debug/usr/lib/libboost_date_time.so.1.46.1" shows that it
does appear in Debian's libboost1.46-dbg package. I suspect though
that the actual library /usr/lib/libboost_date_and_time.so.1.46.1 has
a .gnu_debuglink entry with the same name (no .debug extension), which
will still work with my change.
Contemporary GDB contains the following comment, which agrees with my
/* Find a separate debug info file as if symbols would be present in
PARENT_OBJFILE itself this function would not be called. .gnu_debuglink
section can contain just the basename of PARENT_OBJFILE without any
".debug" suffix as "/usr/lib/debug/path/to/file" is a separate tree where
the separate debug infos with the same basename can exist. */
If there's no objection I'll make the change later today.
