I agree. I'm not talking about changing defaults.
All I'm after is being able to make and install say /bin/sh with
debugging info, without having to edit the Makefile, currently, short
of running make CFLAGS="all the flags that are normally set..." that
is not possible - it should be. And I _occasionally_ find I need to
compile something without -O so that gdb can follow what is going on
and/or not lead you astray.
So yes, the defaults are fine, but they should be just that -
