The -g option of gcc requests the inclusion of debugging symbols to the
executable.  Without -g, symbols with static linkage would be excluded
from the object files.  AFAIK, also the native cc of proprietary Unix
platforms follow that convention.

Can you add the line

(/sbin/ifconfig; /sbin/route -n) > /tmp/inet.txt

to the script that starts vdr, right before the vdr command?  That would
answer my question if TCP/IP networking is set up before vdr is started
for the first time.

This is another hint that the original init script might be run before
configuring TCP/IP networking.
