I would preffer to see there -ggdb and FEATURES=splitdebug to be honest.

FEATURES=splitdebug is already a part of the developer profile. And then
that bashrc file was added there to avoid adding -ggdb to CFLAGS
unconditionally (it increases compile/link time a *lot* for packages
like xulrunner, webkit, or chromium).

This was the only response to my e-mail, so I guess most people don't
care about the bashrc file in question. I'd still like to remove it -
was your reply a "no way" or just "I'd prefer something else"?

FYI: I went ahead and committed the change. Enjoy a slightly simpler
developer profile!
