Thanks for your replies!

Indeed, commenting CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO option disables building -dbg
package. Just what I needed!

bindeb-pkg doesn't disable building -dbg package, but it helps in
another way. When this target is used only .deb package are built,
all .tar.gz archives, .changes and stuff like this are disabled. It
also speeds up building a little, thanks!
