No, the unstripped version is in rather bad form, see bug 46028 for some 
details. Right now, please don't use it (unless for some very specific 
debugging cases).

The problem is that we provide DWARF debug symbols in DLL files and they 
are huge. We could have it split into a separated files, but until very 
recently, Wine debugger didn't support that. It's also easy enough to 
split files in existing package if someone really needs to. Now that 
Wine support debug links in PE files, using that for unstripped Wine 
Gecko builds would be welcomed. The other plan is to backport llvm-mingw 
Gecko fixes and provide PDB files.
