ddd /sysdeps/i386/elf/start.S: no such file


I have been running Debian sarge for just a few weeks, so please forgive me if the is a RTFM question...but googling only helped me half the way.
When I run ddd I get the error message
/path/.../sysdeps/i386/elf/start.S: no such file or directory
I understand that this error is related to the fact that

"
:That message is from gdb, rather than DDD. It indicates you are on a system
:whose C runtime library contains symbols to support debugging (i.e. it has
:not been stripped), but you do not have the sources to the C library
:installed. This occurs e.g. on Red Hat Linux. IMHO there is no reason for
:the regular C runtime library to contain debugging symbols and I'm happy
:that the distribution I use (Debian GNU/Linux) does not include them.
"


Is it now the case that sarge does include debugging symbols in the C runtime library? How can this problem be fixed? Any tips most appreciated,

Peter

man gcc
-g Produce debugging information in the operating system's native format (stabs, COFF, XCOFF, or DWARF). GDB can work with this debugging information.

well, if your source is x.c then do that:

gcc x.c -g -o x.exe
ddd x.exe

in my case this solve the problem
