Apparently you are running an LFS profile with nALFS, which means this
discussion should be occurring on alfs-discuss, not lfs-dev.
The LFS profile _does_ forcibly unset any CFLAGS/CXXFLAGS you have set
in your environment before running any commands to build the toolchain.
I don't know why this would not have worked in your case, it works for
all of our test builds.

What is this? There is no package called this anywhere on the LFS site.
