Hmm... I guess we shouldn't add it to the cmake macro then :) I
usually wait and see if there's a problem first and then try that as
the fix. I haven't had a situation where it gave me bad flags yet, but
I did have a package that hard coded "Release" with bad flags (-O3
etc..) so I had to patch around that one.
