Description Peter Robinson 2016-02-29 14:22:36 UTC
Generally we don't want to pull in the entire C toolchain for a standard debug tool. This is a regression and will needlessly bloat a standard user install.

This was already discussed in Bug 1306591 such as Bug 1306591 Comment 8.
Do you have any new information not contained there?

Comment 2 Peter Robinson 2016-02-29 15:04:55 UTC
You'd be better off leaving this as a tracker bug, because it's a completely different component and hence impossible to find against the actual package that is causing the problem
