Never tried it I'm afraid - does it just enable the "DEBUG"
preprocessor symbol?

If so then that might have some unexpected effects, a quick grep shows
that will result in extra output in pbsdsh and could potentially
conflict in the DRMAA code (which has its own "DEBUG" symbol).

I can't check as the 4.1-fixes branch currently won't build on Ubuntu,
the check for the libxml2 dev package fails due to an unrelated problem.

cheers,
Chris
