Doesn't work - it's looking for directory Olinux-alpha, while my
compilation is in directory Olinux-alpha.dbg.

I've seen a lot of optimization-related bugs, though some of them were
compiler bugs,  not pari bugs.  In that case, I compare make bench
output for debugging and optimized binary, and go from there.

Yes, that works.
