 Been there, done that.  I used to build with LDFLAGS=-s, until the day
I needed to debug things.  The LFS book is correct that _most_ people
don't ever need to run debugging tools (we don't even provide links to
strace or gdb because they're CMMI packages), but certainly on a
development workstation it can be helpful to keep them around.  Depends
on your disk space, of course.

 Oh well, that was just a suggestion.
