CMake uses a few keyword to identify libraries with special semantic: debug, optimized, and generic.

The code was supposed to only detect those but it turns out the regex was incorrect and matches the library in your case (starting with debug).

Please see the following PR which fixes the regex and allows you to build your package as expected:

I haven't had a chance to look into it. But I'd suspect that your choice of debug as a name is likely colliding with a keyword at one of the layers.
