Re: addition to debian standards
Then that code is plain wrong. Let me quote from the GNU coding standards.
If there are C compiler options that *must* be used for
proper compilation of certain files, do not include them in
`CFLAGS'. Users expect to be able to specify `CFLAGS' freely
themselves. Instead, arrange to pass the necessary options to
the C compiler independently of `CFLAGS', by writing them
explicitly in the compilation commands or by defining an
implicit rule, like this:
CFLAGS = -g
ALL_CFLAGS = -I. $(CFLAGS)
$(CC) -c $(CPPFLAGS) $(ALL_CFLAGS) $<
