I added the following to my mk/ a few months ago.

+.if !empty(CC_VERSION:Mgcc*)
+# and maybe have an option to say to use _STRIPFLAG_CC ??

Also the exim package used to have:
 # XXX: The following will be handled by buildlink2 at some point.
 CFLAGS+=               ${_STRIPFLAG_CC}

I don't think it was ever "handled".
