i was suspecting about that, thanks! :)

i'm a bit confused about the way of handling compiler flags in mk.conf, 
CFLAGS seems a bit wrong to assign, for example 
sys/arch/i386/stand/Makefile.booters try to reset user assigned 
COPTS,CPUFLAGS and CPPFLAGS but does nothing about CFLAGS and CXXFLAGS
and in my case fails at the end of compilation when checking the binary size 
of boot_xx. 
Looking at clarifies a bit showing an finer-grained way 
of handling compiler flags in netbsd.

would be better to split my CFLAGS between CPUFLAGS+= and COPTS+= 
and let and Makefile's handle them for that kind of case ?

we have any doc's on this subject ?
