This is the difference between automake 1.4 and automake 1.8, I still
use the old one. I have a 'traditional' bootstrap script (in devel/config)
that runs the whole suite of auto-tools. 

I use an old gcc release for compiling libMPost as well. There are a 
lot of installations out there that do not have the newer versions. This 
became quite clear the other day with Salman was not able to compile
texutil and texexec.

Would you by any chance know how to disable -O2 in that case?

I don't like optimization during debugging because it confuses gdb and 
slows down compilation. Forcing CFLAGS is the only way to make 
sure that -O2 doesn't appear in the compile command (that I could find).
