Which part of that causes the problem?  It sounds like there is an issue
with Release mode flags.
Wouldn't you just have the same problem if "cmake
-DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release" was used on the command line?
I guess maybe it could be a problem if it wasn't one of the first things
done and it changed mid-processing.
