We've had such already, and when debugging that, the use of the
configure switches is the smallest problem you have ;-) - you have to do
much more magic to be able to isolate the problem (eg. compile part of
the file with -O0 and the other part with -O<whatyouaredebugging>),
instead of relying on the configure switches.
