These are pretty big when taken together.

There is no other way than to have it as a compiler option, since the
compiler must generate special code for it. Similarly, -gv implies
that you will use Valgrind, but that does not mean we're going to
ship Valgrind with the compiler.
That said, it may make sense to ship those libraries on Windows,
since most people won't have them. An optional downloadable package
would probably make more sense though.
