As a followup, note that you can _NOT_ test multiple debug formats the
way that GCC tests multilibs.

You need to run with unix/gdb:debug_flags=-gdwarf-2, not just
unix/-gdwarf-2.  If you do the latter, most tests will be compiled with
-g -gdwarf-2 (harmless), but nodebug.exp will be build with -gdwarf-2.
