Because then you don't need to have a separate debug mode.  If the software can be built and run in place, i.e. run ./olsrd in the source tree after its built, then you can debug it without installing.  I do this all the time, setting LD_LIBRARY_PATH or using symlinks to load plugins.

Then for proper installs, they'll be stripped as part of the install process.  This is how autotools does it and how Debian recommends build systems do it.
