About halfway through section 16.3 of the GNU make manual
(https://www.gnu.org/software/make/manual/make.html), it says "Do include the
ā€˜-gā€™ option in CFLAGS, because that is not required for proper
compilation. You can consider it a default that is only recommended. If the
package is set up so that it is compiled with GCC by default, then you might
as well include ā€˜-Oā€™ in the default value of CFLAGS as well."

The surrounding wording strongly implies that the "Do" at the beginning of the
quoted section was supposed to be "Don't". Please clarify this.
