Because grub, like any well-behaved package, reads $CFLAGS, and I forgot
to unset $CFLAGS before I configured it.

The reason this discussion is on-topic in the first place is that grub
needs a reminder to unset $CFLAGS before you build it, like gcc, glibc,
binutils, etc (all of which work well optimized for me, btw :) ).
