#3820 closed defect (invalid)

$CFLAGS and $CXXFLAGS handled incorrectly

Cc: Ticket locked: no


On setting: CHOST="i686-pc-linux-gnu" CFLAGS="-march=athlon-xp -O2 -pipe -fomit-frame-pointer" CXXFLAGS="${CFLAGS}" and running ./configure make

I see the compiler options set "ccache gcc -c -pipe -march=pentiumpro -w -O3 -march=athlon-xp -O2 -pipe...."

Without the above environment variable set, the line only contains "...c -pipe -march=pentiumpro -w -O3..."

The configure script should correctly detect the fact that CFLAGS and CXXFLAGS are used, and either obey them without barfing in extra, contradictory flags, or override them, WHILE NOTIFIYING THE USER! No error whatsoever was thrown by configure to indicate to me, the user, that something was set up incorrectly.

Without the environment variables, running "./configure -arch=athlon-xp", everything worked as expected.
