Thank you for the reply!

Is it better if I rebuild without the debug information in the binary 
(for performance or other reasons)?  If so, are there some recommended 
options to pass to cc-opt and/or ld-opt?

Thank you again!

So I'm wondering whether this is normal or what happened, and basically how to test my build now.  Is there a test-script package or anything that can verify that binary I created?
