Actually yes. I plan to introduce a central place for customizing the build 
(in the OT locale kit build system it's build/UserBuildConfig). Among 
others you will be able to set the DEBUG variable at least per directory 
(could be hard doing that per object file), which will cause the concerned 
targets to be placed in a different directory. Pretty much what Andrew did, 
with the difference that the build system "knows" where a target has been 
placed. makehdimage will go away or at least be generated by the build 
system (only some fragments like the generation of the MIME DB might remain 
as scripts).

If I understand you correctly, that would force the targets to be misplaced 
in the release directory although they were built with debugging?
