That isn't a good idea that overwrites CMAKE_CXX_FLAGS entirely rather
than appending.

Regardless of that there are several ways of specifying flags. It can
be done at the target level (e.g. target_compile_definitions(mylib
COMPILE_OPTIONS ...) ) or globally using CMAKE_CXX_FLAGS_*. There are
several flags for different release types, e.g.


I believe there are other ways to set flags as well. You should look
at how the developers have set their flags in their CMakeLists.txt
files and do it the same way.

As a hack you could check what's set the CMake cache and manually change it

$ make edit_cache
