It simply causes and additional section to be added to the resulting binary. When the program is run normally (i.e. not under gdb), that section won't be mapped. The only downside to -g is that it increases the size of the file.
But when executing the program will it not read the whole binary which is much larger with debug information and so will take longer (just the first reading of the binary)?
