Any autotools (autoconf/configure) based tool will also take a CFLAGS
environment into consideration. Those tools will also likely not build
with your environment. Good luck opening 300,000[*] bug tickets. ;-)
(Note: ffmpeg is not autoconf based.)

Why would you even export this variable, if your compiler doesn't
support it?


[*] Wild guesstimate.
