Like to go without -g

During compilation of squid, I noticed that it includes the -g flag for
gcc. As far as I know, on all platforms that includes debugging code for
GDB. One of the results is a much larger binary, which I don't like and
would like to eliminate on my production server. Related to this I'd like
to have the following questions answered:

Is there a good reason to include -g that I am overlooking?
Is there an easy way to tell the configure script not to include it or do
I have to keep going through Makefiles and removing it after the fact?
