-DDEBUG and testsuite

The ill fated commit I made yesterday was a partial attempt to
address some of the problems: basically, it boils down to DEBUG
blocks that induce extra debugging output that the test framework
doesn't know about.

I guess the correct thing to do is track all these places down
individually and add checks for -dno-debug-output, though if some
tests are checking for debug output, that might be tricky.
