And indeed it did! COPTS didn't actually add optimization (only to
kernel apparently) but CFLAGS didn't break anything when used with +=.
The whole world compiled cleanly without needing those dirty hacks I
Wow. A lack of a single + causing so much trouble. Could somebody pass
this up to documentation teams so a fair warning can be issued? It's
just that this never cropped up in my FreeBSD usage (lasted about a
year, then 5.3 made it clear it was going nowhere good) so it hadn't
occured to me that forcing CFLAGS could be a problem.
Thanks for everybody's help, and hopefully with some more familiarity I
can give something back later.
