As it works now (as I understand) the rules makefile effectively tries to
make the build independent of the actual machine it is built on. Of course
this is great for maintainers who create a binary for distribution.
It would also be nice to have an easy way to rebuild a package as user and
have the building optimized for the particular machine that the user has.
If the rules file could take standard parameters like the cc to use,
optimization flags to use, another architecture altogether than the
machine on which is built etc., that would be a nifty thing to have.
