I wonder whether you have used the option --enable-tls when configuring
PARI. This breaks the ABI, so you have to do it also for the debugging 
build.  You cannot use the TLS headers with a non-TLS libpari.

However, I would advise to install the debugging build somewhere
and using the headers and the library from the debugging build. 
This would avoid this kind of issues entirely.

Of course , you can use gp2c-dbg to compile your module.
