possible to enable debug symbols by default?

Well, to do that, you would have to change the default configure.optflags in portconfigure.tcl



and change 

default configure.optflags      {-Os}

to something like

default configure.optflags      {"-O0 -g"}

perhaps, or whatever works for you.

Then on a port by port basis you might need to look for Portfiles that override the configure.optflags and check on them individually.

Finally, you'd need to set

buildfromsource    		always

No tickets, please! You're on your own when you go off track like this.
