What for? If you want a separate debug info file (-Xg) then your 
executable will contain a section with that file name. As result you 
have a small executable. If you distribute that executable without debug 
file it will work fine but without line info. If you distribute with 
debug file then you will have lineinfo. What do you need more?

Best regards,
