If the cmake source scanner can detect (not sure) the usage of
#ifdef MY_DEBUG
then that's all that is needed to achieve that:

Not everything that looks like debug stuff must be coupled with a  
"debug" build type. It can as well only define the default for MY_DEBUG.
If it cannot detect this, use a config.h. That it certainly can.
