Actually, from the GNU-standard INSTALL file, they recomend setting the
CFLAGS environment variable (and any others) before running configure:

   Some systems require unusual options for compilation or linking that
the `configure' script does not know about.  You can give `configure'
initial values for variables by setting them in the environment.  Using a
Bourne-compatible shell, you can do that on the command line like this:

     CC=c89 CFLAGS=-O2 LIBS=-lposix ./configure


Of course, this is only a suggestion, but it is a Common Way of Doing
