You'll find that a lot of Debian source packages set CFLAGS themselves,
and may use gcc-specific flags. It's not obvious whether it's a bug that
they don't honour a user-set CFLAGS: I can see arguments on both sides
(autobuild consistency versus user overrides). Since as far as I know we
don't have any policy on this, you may well find yourself having to
change some debian/rules files.
