Subject: Makefile changes to make building *-clang-debug easier

Hi all,

currently, -faddress-sanitizer is used for the *-clang-debug builds.

But clang 3.2 complains that this option is deprecated, and suggests
using -fsanitize=address instead.
I am, however, not sure whether or not older clang versions support
-faddress-sanitizer, but not -fsanitize=address.

Due to, none of these
options can be used on Fedora 18.
That's why I decided to patch Makefile and introduce a new variable,
I also changed the default from the old -faddress-sanitizer to the new
This might destroy backwards compatibility, so I am not sure whether I
should send a pull request for unstable.
That's why I just attach the patch.
OTOH, the *-clang-debug targets are intended for developers, not for end
users. They are not even mentioned when just using "make".

What do you think?
