I'm going to opt for 2.5. Moving the CFLAGS and CXXFLAGS info to the
page where the bashrc is created. It would suck if the user forgot to
unset the flags from their host. I do it every so often. A note stating
something like "Having CFLAGS and CXXFLAGS set during the build can
cause builds to fail" would make more sense that having a whole page
dedicated to saying "CFLAGS and CXXFLAGS must not be set during the
building of cross tools." It might even reduce the render time by a
second or two.
