Really you are proposing adding a debug option to a large number of
packages, not to a meta-package (which presumably has an empty PLIST).

So probably in the meta-pkg Makefile.common you would have


  [if debug, then cmake_flags+= foo]

which will add the option to every package using that Makefile.common.

In general, it may be best for setting of the above  to always be +=
rather than =.
