At the time I noticed this (maybe 1 year ago), it was not so simple to get rid of CFLAGS, or perhaps I looked only at opal.

I will take a new look as soon as I find time, thanks.

ptlib's configure seems to modify CFLAGS like this:

CFLAGS="-g -O2"

overwriting the current values

instead of

CFLAGS+="-g -O2"

adding to the current values

Looks like that needs fixing....

In the compiling instructions
it is stated that the use of the CFLAGS variable is not reliable. I
was wondering if this is still the case ? And if so, what seems to be
the issue ? I would like to use the CFLAGS var.

I think this is still the case.  ptlib and opal wrongly define some
configuration flags in CFLAGS, and if you use CFLAGS then those flags are
not used anymore.  The end result is that compilation fails or that
execution of ekiga fails, I do not remember exactly which one.
