Here's a draft of a paragraph discussing CFLAGS-related problems. This is the result of a discussion I started on gentoo-dev. Thanks to all devs who gave feedback this should bring some food for thought to GWN readers.
Hi Lionel, Thanks for writing this up, great job. Nitpicking spelling and grammar points to follow ;)
configurability that are hallmarks of the <uri link=http://www.gentoo.org/main/en/about.xml> Gentoo experience</uri>.
Extra space before "Gentoo" here.
for most users. There's usually very little benefit, high risks and much time spent on frustating tuning that could be enjoyed doing far more interesting things. </warn>
"frustating" should be "frustrating"
<p>Example of this are :</p>
Should be plural: "Examples"
<li><c>-fforce-addr</c> and <c>-fweb</c> break regularly on x86 with video libraries or graphic processing apps which use hand-optimised ASM. <c>-fweb</c> may be safe on amd64 but like above no guarantees</li>
"optimised" should be "optimized"
For example <c>-ffast-math</c> is added by the xmame/xmess ebuilds on most architectures even tho you SHOULD NOT put it in your CFLAGS.</li>
"tho" should be "though" -- firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list
