With -g, it crashes GDB. With -gc, there's debug info, but all the symbol
names seem to be mangled. Maybe I was just looking in the wrong place, but
the few times I've tried to debug things compiled with -gc, I've rarely been
able to find the symbol I wanted. I'm not sure why.

As a note, you can currently build using GDC if you modify the arguments in
the response file and use xargs to invoke GDC using the response file.
