BTW, just to make things clear. It's likely that those Makefile snippet
(if we decide to go that way) become quite more elaborated as we try
integrating support for things like hardening-wrapper (see #489771).
Expect stuff like "if debian/control has Build-Options-Supported:
hardening" then use that set of flags, otherwise that one.
