Could someone please post the following notice for Debian GNU/Linux
users to <>:

The binaries in all Debian packages have their debugging symbols
stripped to save space on their mirrors. If you'd like to use a Balsa
Debian package with them left in, you may rebuild the package as
follows. (# as root, $ as user)

1. Check /etc/apt/sources.list for a deb-src line matching your Debian
   eg. deb-src unstable main contrib non-free

   # apt-get update

2. Install packages required to build balsa.

   # apt-get install fakeroot
   # apt-get build-dep balsa

3. Build the package.
   $ DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS=nostrip fakeroot apt-get source --build balsa

4. Install newly built Balsa debugging packages
   # dpkg -i balsa*.deb
