You could build with --enable-debug, but that turns on a lot of extra debugging and make Bro run quite a bit slower.  

It seems that if you give -O0 as a CXXFLAG when you run configure we're currently appending those values in the wrong order when the compiler runs so you can't override it that way at the moment.
