Re: CMake compiler flags handling

Meh. That doesn't actually do anything sensible. Stupid. At that point,
${CMAKE_C_FLAGS_INIT} is an empty string anyway (only sometimes?).
Sorry. It seemed so simple for a moment, but totally the wrong tree
being barked up.

It's more involved to change the established cult of CMake from always
appending after environment flags got inserted. Avoiding hardcoded
optimization level flags might be the next best thing. Funny enough,
LAPACK does this:

if( "${CMAKE_Fortran_FLAGS_RELEASE}" MATCHES "O[3-9]" )
  message( STATUS "Reducing RELEASE optimization level to O2" )
  string( REGEX REPLACE "O[3-9]" "O2" CMAKE_Fortran_FLAGS_RELEASE
          "${CMAKE_Fortran_FLAGS_RELEASE}" )
       CACHE STRING "Flags used by the compiler during release builds" FORCE )

After all … pkgsrc could also define a differing default
CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE, creating a new one, even.

So my post is mostly about this part:

Alrighty then,
