Debug Build of Python

Hi all,

Just curious how to get an "all bells and whistles" debug build of python.
In the source for 2.4.3, I see the following debug related options:
e.g. "make OPT=-g" will build a debugging version of Python
on most platforms
Additional debugging code to help debug memory management problems can
be enabled by using the --with-pydebug option to the configure script.
From Misc/SpecialBuilds.txt:
This file describes some special Python build types enabled via
compile-time preprocessor defines.

Here we have a bunch of defines documented. Where should these be be set?
Is there a particular .h file? Are any of them implied by the debugging
options to make and ./configure?
