That does not make sense for a few reasons:

1) I am not asking for a way for the user to configure with their own
flags.  I am not the user, I am the author, I am writing the makefile, I
think this is clear in the original post. I would like the package to
build without debugging symbols. I already have CFLAGS declared in the

2)  Compiling -O2 does not "cancel" -g anyway, you can compile "gcc -g
-O2" and *both flags* will be used.  

3) -O2 is part of the default anyway.  When I make I get
"gcc [my makefile flags] -g -O2", etc.  If I add -O2 to my flags, then
-O2 appears twice.

How can I remove -g?
