Beware of the optimizations: Debian Policy mandates ability to disable
optimizations, so if above -O3 is applied by upstream (or hardcoded in
your build rules) then it is most likely done wrong.

I cloned the project to try have a closer look, but apparently picked
the wrong one (openni) - no O3 mentioned anywhere in source code.  But
doing so I noticed several tarballs inside the git - that looks bad!

Yeah, the upstream source is a mess for all this, there are mostly no official release tarballs, except for the binary one. The free software library and modules are only in git, but they don't develop out of that git. They post different versions into different branches, like the 'stable' version is only in the master branch, and the 'unstable' version is in an 'unstable' branch, but that 'unstable' branch does not included the 'stable' release.

So, on that note, the optimization flags are in the upstream build system.
