AFAIU, the patch was created while solving ports/150363 (dates correlate).

The same effect can be achieved by specifying
CMAKE_C(XX)_FLAGS_{RELEASE,DEBUG} in command line.
So, I suggest removing the patch from
ports/devel/cmake/files/patch-Modules_Compiler_GNU.cmake and patching
ports/Mk/ instead (attached). After applying this patch
system C(XX)FLAGS will be propagated for Release and Debug build

Please correct me if there are more issues caused by cmake's C(XX)FLAGS
or if the patch doesn't work as expected (I've tested it locally on
several ports, CFLAGS were passed correctly).
