10 /If/ you're¹ going to insist on doing this, could you please at least do it in
11 a way that's easy for users to disable? (Profile LDFLAGS as the subject line
12 says obviously qualifies, but there's also been talk of creating gcc-config
13 profiles, modified specs etc.) That way people can choose according to their
