generation debugging information for the first cycle (-g-), because 
otherwise it doesn't converge for some reason (at least not under Linux).

The reason is that read(ln)/write(ln) has been made processor 
independent and some helpers' parameter list had to be changed to allow 
this. They still use the old convention when you compile with 1.0.x 
however (or a 1.1 compiler which doesn't define the "compilerproc"
