Valgrind gives me this error:

valgrind: Fatal error at startup: a function redirection
valgrind: which is mandatory for this platform-tool combination
valgrind: cannot be set up. Details of the redirection are:
valgrind: A must-be-redirected function
valgrind: whose name matches the pattern: strlen
valgrind: in an object with soname matching: ld-linux-x86-64.so.2
valgrind: was not found whilst processing
valgrind: symbols from the object with soname: ld-linux-x86-64.so.2
valgrind: Possible fixes: (1, short term): install glibc's debuginfo
valgrind: package on this machine. (2, longer term): ask the packagers
valgrind: for your Linux distribution to please in future ship a non-
valgrind: stripped ld.so (or whatever the dynamic linker .so is called)
valgrind: that exports the above-named function using the standard
valgrind: calling conventions for this platform. The package you need
valgrind: to install for fix (1) is called
valgrind: On Debian, Ubuntu: libc6-dbg
valgrind: On SuSE, openSuSE, Fedora, RHEL: glibc-debuginfo
valgrind: Note that if you are debugging a 32 bit process on a
valgrind: 64 bit system, you will need a corresponding 32 bit debuginfo
valgrind: package (e.g. libc6-dbg:i386).
valgrind: Cannot continue -- exiting now. Sorry.

Could arch do 1 of the following:
1. Provide a package with debug symbols for glibc
2. Don't strip the symbols

Either option would help devs out massively! And as arch is very often used by devs, it makes very much sense to go for either of those options.
This task depends upon

Please install `debuginfod` as valgrind has this support.
