Hi Nigel,
I had already noticed this difference.
But why the application with debug information is not so big, whereas the
libraries are?
And the SDE 6 document says that using -gstabs flag can make it compile with
STABS debug format.
I replaced -g3 with -gstabs flag when compiling uClibc, but it cannot
compile successfully.

Regards,
Colin
