The sed make the changes to the optimisations permanent, while the
environmental variable is temporary, it doesn't stay if you throw the
power switch, accidentaly kill the shell, or do something similar. If
you forget to use the CFLAGS="-g -O2 -fomit-frame-pointer" with make
install you may possibly have something not built with those
optimisations, or at least my observation is that make install on gcc
seems to compile some more stuff.

If I have my conclusions wrong then correct them.
