Only locally, please. I'd recomment that you set your environment 
variable CFLAGS accordingly. That variable should be picked up by 
configure et al.

(note: If it doesn't get picked up but gets overridden, then that's an 
error in the build system and needs to be fixed. CFLAGS should always be 
set by the user, whereas in the you only set AM_CFLAGS.)

Or eventually due to the newer distributions we might decide that we 
accept their requirements. But I'm not into that issue, so I stay quiet 
about that...
