Some of the GNOME packages were overriding the configure environment
with its CDBS variable (something like DEB_CONFIGURE_ENV), not adding to
it (i.e. using = as operator, not += or something), thus ignoring CFLAGS
et al.

Those should get fixed, so if you encounter this in a package in
unstable or experimental, please file bugs if it is indeed this problem.
