The file _oc_polybool.oct file generated by the octclip package should include the debugging symbols. It should be up to the user or to the maintainer of the distribution where the package will be included to strip those symbols.

This is the case, for instance, in the Debian distribution. The regular Debian package octave-octclip includes the stripped version of the _oc_polybool.oct file, while the octave-octclip-dgbsym package includes the non stripped version.

The patch attached to this bug report (which essentially replaces the "-s" option by the "-g" option to mkoctfile) fixes the problem.
