Compiling with --enable-debug activcates the "-B <stream>"
command-line option in which <stream> is a list of comma-seperated
tags activating different kinds of debugging output. There's no
documentation of the tags yet but you can find a list of them in
src/DebugLogger.cc. The output will be written to debug.log

That said, this logging framework is one of the more recent
developments and not yet consistently used across the whole system.
Older parts of code for debugging output usually depend on setting
some special flag somewhere (often inside the code plus recompile)
to activate (and they still require --enable-debug to be compiled
