[PATCH v3] configure: Fix default -O2 being added when CFLAGS not set

From: Glenn Washburn
Subject: [PATCH v3] configure: Fix default -O2 being added when CFLAGS not set
Date: Sat, 9 Apr 2022 02:29:59 +0000

Autoconf will set a default CFLAGS of "-g -O2" if CFLAGS is not set. CFLAGS
was defaulted to "" early in configure to prevent this. A recent commit
ad9ccf660013c208077b1e983d6c824df25ed1cf ("configure: Fix various new
autotools warnings") added AC_USE_SYSTEM_EXTENSIONS, which pulls in the
autoconf CFLAGS check, before we default CFLAGS and thus setting the
autoconf default for CFLAGS. Move the default setting of CFLAGS to before
AC_USE_SYSTEM_EXTENSIONS so that autoconf will see CFLAGS as set and not
give it a default.

CFLAGS is also moved above AC_CONFIG_AUX_DIR, because CFLAGS should be
defaulted to "" as soon as possible to catch any autoconf macros that try
to use some other default. Regardless, this currently has no effect as that
macro does not consider the CFLAGS variable.
