Typically this is done by only ever adding to CFLAGS within configure:


That way any user settings are automatically incorporated. Of course this
breaks if the configure adds any options that are incompatible with the
user settings. Parsing the user options works in some case (AC_PROG_CC
does this) but is pretty much beyond the scope of autoconf for CFLAGS.

Another approach is to just not add any compiler flags (beyond -I and
-L/-l) at all if CFLAGS is defined at the start, and tack on a $(DEFS)
with all the source-specific defines at the end.
