Automatic debug symbol generation

I was setting up build infrastructure once again when it occurred to
me, hmm, wouldn't it be nice if automake had default targets for
installing symbols?

For example, make install-syms could do objcopy --only-keep-debug on
the binaries and libraries, and put the .debug files in

It looks like implementing this is as simple as just patching
and, but I have no clue what automake's regression testing
strategy is.  Is there another developer set up and sufficiently
convinced this is a feature worth implementing?  If not, how do I get
started building a dev environment for automake?
