That's what I originally thought, too, but I found in practice that it
doesn't work - not properly, anyway. Removing -release makes tests
The makefile also needs a way to make a Phobos debug build. A couple
of horrific BigInt bugs slipped through because I had assumed that if
you do a -unittest build,'
you get asserts enabled. But you don't. My test cases should have been
triggering asserts.
