Done.  The easiest way for me to do it was to remove the auto_cflags set/test 
from configure.ac.  I don't see that it had any value now that we're pretty 
much letting users set CFLAGS to whatever they want.

There still is the code that adds -D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2 to CFLAGS (with a -O).  
It seems to me that the same argument for not putting -ansi -pedantic in CFLAGS 
could be made for -D_FORTIFY_SOURCE.  But I do think it's worth keeping.
