Yep.  I'd suggest the macro.

The way its setup now, you have to do it manually in each file.  I,
too, thought this was a royal pain in the arse, so I fixed it.  The
problem is that my dynamic debugging changes are intertwined in my
hacks to get Kore to work on Kaffe.  You should be able to pull the
relevant parts out of the diffs, though.   The other caveat is that I
did this for 0.9.2, but haven't yet migrated my changes to 0.10.0.
Look at http://www.cs.utah.edu/projects/flux/java/kore/ for more info.

Tim's style is to have the first letter denote what sort of debug, in
your case ADBG is an alloc-DBG, etc.  Not a very strict standard, of
course.  Usually the meaning of an xDBG is private to the .c file it
