Fixing this in the top-level configury is definitely the wrong way,
simply because one has to remember to put the same fix into the
local files as well, as you described.

Hmm... I'd suggest you add code to libiberty's aclocal.m4, which
initializes a new autoconf variable ac_libiberty_debuginfo_cflags
depending on whether the compiler is capable of generating proper
code and debugging info or not; this doesn't necessarily mean that
you have to actually compile code at configure time, but you can
define its value based on some host specific libiberty/config/*
file with a default of '-g' instead. This code should be added to the
definition of the LIB_AC_PROG_CC function in a similar fashion as
we are already doing for ac_libiberty_warn_cflags. libiberty's can then use this in the definition of COMPILE.c

How about that?
