That is true. However, there's a problem; you can control package
options of individual packages with USE flags, but you can't control
compilation switches of individual packages with CFLAGS. This will
naturally make people feel like using USE flags to modify compilation
options is a good idea.
Surely, one has to sympathize with this mindset even though it's a wrong
thing to do.
