This adds a cflag preventing the compiler to make some assumptions on the code for its optimisations, hence making the code slower/bigger. While the changelog entry will help figuring out why this was added, a comment in the ebuild explaining why will be even better. Once you'll have to dig into 4 years of cvs log to figure out wth a cflag filtering/addition was added into an ebuild maybe you'll reconsider your opinion. Please always keep in mind that you're not the only one that will ever commit to $package and even less the only one that will have a look at a given ebuild. A.
