You can access $CFLAGS before AC_PROG_CC, for example save its value to
some other variable:

This will set them to "NONE" if CFLAGS was not set, and to $CFLAGS if it
was set to some empty or nonempty value.

Then, in your macro, you can access and compare $LX_CFLAGS and $CFLAGS,
for example.  The macro should be called right (or soon) after
AC_PROG_CC, I guess, so other compiler tests use your flags.
