Is there any flag I can enable when compiling to generate more detailes 
debug info to the list?

I really appreciatte help already obtained from the community... I'll 
love to help giving more information for this exceptional software.

IT: someone started a pt_BR translation for docs? I'll like to contribute.

Thank you all,

Edson Richter
