That's not filtering, that's inverting. In this case I need filtering. 
I can try to get the developers to change their makefiles, but none of
that would help if I can't get -fpie and -fno-pie out of the user's
CFLAGS.

I could of course close any bugs that I would get because of these
CFLAGS as invalid and suggest they use the appropriate gcc profile 
instead.

Would that be reasonable?

Maurice.
