You can check whether the object files contain debug infos with `dwarfdump file.o`.

And you probably can also tell your build environment to run in verbose mode to see the actual GCC invocation to check the flags.

The typical reason why it doesn't show debug information is because you have been executing in the nirvana for a while already, and corrupted your stack.
