"I think it would be possible to check whether libstdc++ has been built with _GLIBCXX_DEBUG, for example using `nm'. But I doubt it's worth the effort."

I mean boost, not libstdc++, of course.

Yes, you would have to rebuild boost/program_options with _GLIBCXX_DEBUG=1 before you can build Gnash with the flag.

AFAIK no distribution defines _GLIBCXX_DEBUG by default, and people who add their own flags should be prepared to deal with the ensuing problems.

I think it would be possible to check whether libstdc++ has been built with _GLIBCXX_DEBUG, for example using `nm'. But I doubt it's worth the effort.

The problems I saw were with undefined symbols from boost program options. May be due to this: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/19729036/boost-program-options-wont-work-with-glibcxx-debug

Could be worth disabling the debug from boost program option users, but would be even better to be able to tell if the boost libraries were or not built with debugging symbols enabled.
