Would it just be easier for you maintain a template mk.conf with the
necessary options set so that those who need to build a package manually
can uncompress bootstrap kit (or bootstrap), add the mk.conf snippet,
start building the relevant packages.

That could just be that it needs some attention rather than intentional.

Just out of curiosity, are you looking to build everything with these
flags or specific applications which you are certain behave correctly
with compiler optimisations?
