Default build options have to produce portable binaries, which can be

I recommend to struggle for sane defaults in binary packages and leave
package options for advanced or motivated users only.
This approach works well in the Linux world. There are options in e.g.
RPM packages, but nobody is using them.
Scientists often use hundreds of thousands of core-hours for a single
study in HPC, so they're motivated, but I wouldn't call most of them
advanced. They need an easy way to build optimized binaries so they can
focus on the science they do well rather than the IT that distracts them
