no - it's working as I thought it should:  If you _don't_ set $CFLAGS,
autoconf decides if gcc supports the -g option (some ports don't), and adds
it.  If you don't specify --enable-debug, I strip it out.  (But I don't add
it otherwise, since that would be ignoring the $CFLAGS value).

two choices:
        don't override $CFLAGS, and use --enable-debug.

        override $CFLAGS, but add -g (--enable-debug is optional)
