Thanks, but earlier you mentioned the _OPENMP macro -- is that defined
by <omp.h>, or is it predefined by cpp?  I just now checked
<>, and it implies
(though it doesn't say) that _OPENMP is predefined by cpp.  If so,
OPENMP_CFLAGS needs to be put into CPPFLAGS too, and the problem needs
to be documented.

In this case, I don't see the downside of having 'configure'
manipulate CC, CFLAGS, and/or CPPFLAGS to use the -fopenmp option
uniformly for all compiles.  This should be simpler and more reliable
than requiring the developer to put $(OPENMP_CFLAGS) all over the
place.  And it should address the CFLAGS/CPPFLAGS issue as well.
