Put any overrides in Makefile.inc.local.  If you feel the desire to change
anything mk/*.mk directly, seek professional advice (or report a bug) :-)

mk/local.mk is a hack, per:
# Currently both mk/dirs.mk and Makefile.inc need to see the local
# definitions in Makefile.inc.local but Makefile.inc can't (yet)
# assume dirs.mk has been included.  This wrapper prevents multiple
# includes.

I could add DEBUG_CFLAGS = -g and O_CFLAGS = -O2.  Unfortunately, per an
earlier post, we've no consistency with what flags get passed to CC so as
you've noticed it doesn't always work.

Somewhere in my queue.
