Please don't top-post! And strip your quotes!

Yes, when configuring your kernel setup by editing the .config disable debug.

Dave Jones @redhat.com:

"The ones from the rpm have their debug info stripped and put into the aptly named 'debuginfo' rpm.
When you compile it yourself, it leaves this info in the file.

If you don't care about it you can unset CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO and it won't
generate it.

You could have researched that yourself. Next time please.
