Yes, you are right :)

dwarf2 debug format is the standard format since gcc3 (and dwarf3 format who 
is an dwarf2 extension is already specified so gcc4/5 may use it).

Stabs format (use when -gstabs+ option is used) are only supported (without 
any evolution) for backward compatibility with olders debuggers.

If you want to get maximum debug infos of recent gccs ou must use dwarf2 (and 
prepare future when stabs format will don't be more supported)
