I think it's important to keep the information in sync while building
the packages.  A later rebase will break the connection between debug
symbols and runtime symbols as well, obviously.  Maybe we should think
of rebasing the actual binaries as well as their debugging counterparts
to keep everything in sync, but that's a bit much effort...
