[SOLVED] no debugging symbols found (not the simple case)

The question does not have to be directly related to Linux and any language is fair game.

Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I wasn't sure where to put this so if I need to move it just let me know.
I have a strange problem that I cannot figure out. When I use gdb to debug our rpm-installed program, it says (no debugging symbols found) when it loads. Thing is, when I use nm on the program it can print the symbols, and even stranger is if I use gdb on the program before it is packed up by rpmbuild it loads the debug symbols just fine.
Our program is built via the standard make using:
CFLAGS=-g -Wall -pedantic
and as I mentioned I can debug the resulting program. After the build, I package it up using:
Are the -devel or (-debuginfo if there is one) libraries installed on the new host?
Not sure what those are. However, if I overlay the bin from my "made" directory, (the bin that is not in the package), I can debug fine. Are -devel and/or -debuginfo something specified in the spec file?
So, even though it says the bin is not stripped using file it looks like it really might be. At least I assume that is what rpmbuild is doing in those calls. Is there a way to prevent rpmbuild from stripping the bins?
