I usually do this by setting DEBUG_FLAGS=-g in src/lib/blah/Makefile
and just doing the make depend && make && make install routine in that
one directory.  It's perfectly safe to do this if your source tree
matches your installed system.  Doing it with newer sources is trickier
since you may have to manually update includes or other dependant
libraries, and building the whole world is usually easier.
