Isn't compilation with debug enabled by default in FFmpeg? So the "debug
mode" is what you get if you don't remember to explicitly disable it.

The -g switches do use a lot more space. Here are examples with

-O3 : 109 kB
-g  : 207 kB
-g3 : 539 kB

So at least in this case using -g3 increases .o size to over five times
what it's without debugging symbols.
