[Development] Building qtwebkit with -gstabs instead of -g on certain archs

The archs arm, i386, i686, mips and s390 can get their memory exhausted when 
building QtWebkit, so at least on Debian we are replacing -g with -gstabs for 
those archs. As I understand this comes from a suggestion by Ossi.

I would like to know if you would like to have this replacement done in Qt 
itself (ie, if you would accept a patch to do this) or if you prefer us 
downstreamers doing it.

Kinds regards, Lisandro.

If for every rule there is an exception, then we have established that there
is an exception to every rule.  If we accept "For every rule there is an
exception" as a rule, then we must concede that there may not be an exception
after all, since the rule states that there is always the possibility of
exception, and if we follow it to its logical end we must agree that there
can be an exception to the rule that for every rule there is an exception.
