Document -DDEBUGGING better

RT #128671 and http://nntp.perl.org/group/perl.perl5.porters/238127.

In particular, perlhacktips and perlrun contained out-of-date information
that setting -g would automatically set DEBUGGING too.

I've also improved the description of -DDEBUGGING in INSTALL, and
tried to make it clearer when the text is referring to the Configure
switch -DDEBUGGING  and when to the C compiler switch -DDEBUGGING.
