[mythtv] Debugging mythtv?

Hi, I noticed today that a few folks were talking about using DDD to debug
I tried this last week with mixed results. GDB always complains that it
cannot find any debugging symbols. I tried to explicitly force them into
the compile by writing a perl script to add the -ggdb flag to every gcc and
g++ in the tree makefiles. It appears as though this is working, but still
no symbols. I presume that there was some other optimization flag that was
taking precedence over my hacked-in flag to add debugging symbols, or they
were getting linked out later. There's gotta be a better way to do this.
Perhaps I'm debugging the wrong executable. Should my command line be
something other than `gdb mythtv` or `ddd mythfrontend`?
Anyone have a quick tip on getting this to go?
