I'm not sure if this is newbie cmake question or rosbuild question, but is there way to compile package with debugging option as -g, -pg? (I found make VERBOSE=1 can generate more verbose output message, so look for something like make DEBUG=1 option.)

In your CMakeLists.txt define this near the top:

set(ROS_BUILD_TYPE Debug)

True, but note that the question was originally asked with the rosbuild tag, and answered in 2012.

The ROS_BUILD_TYPE option above appears to be incorrect for catkin. The proper build command is: catkin_make -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug

This is the correct answer. But this compiles all packages in the workspace with debug flags. Is there a way to target just one?
