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) $<
