After tracing, I identify it’s in /usr/share/qt4/mkspecs/common/g++.conf, the variable QMAKE_CFLAGS_RELEASE. Remove the tail ‘-g’, and the compiled executables are slim as expected. I found a pal has a similar question in a post. I wonder why the ‘-g’ should be specified in RELEASE mode:\
And second, it’s about the interview module. To get an idea of what I say, try this: exec /usr/bin/qtdemo, select “Demonstrations” > “Spreadsheet”, try to edit a cell.
