I think I partially understood the response. I found out the default
installaiton of the debug rpm is on /usr/lib/debug,
 but one thing I still don't understand is that how I can change the
location to /usr/local, say /usr/local/lib/debug and /usr/local/src/debug,
It seems to be quite ugly to have /usr/lib/debug/usr/local/bin/python.debug
while the python executables live in /usr/local/bin.
Any suggestions?
