One of the packaging policies is that CFLAGS is set to match %{optflags} 
as part of the %build phase. %configure does that.

Neither is it when I start rpmbuild :)

I meant a different make/autotools. I prefer not to change my build 
environment. My packages should be able to build on the original 
distribution, not original distribution + new make/autotools.

I prefer not to deviate from Red Hat. I prefer not to replace Red Hat's 
make/autotools. For unmaintained distributions like RH7 or RH9 I couldn't 
care, but for EL2.1 and EL3 this is very much a liability.
