   AM_CFLAGS is reserved for developers.  It's not a problem
   if the user overrides the default value of CFLAGS since
   CFLAGS is reserved for the user.

i understand, and am actually trying achieve, this.  my point
is that it is the auto* tools themselves that are not helping,
or at least i don't know how to request their help to arrange
for a situation where "AM_CFLAGS is reserved for developers".

what i see is that configure sets CFLAGS and *not* AM_CFLAGS,
in apparently normal usage.  it seems a contradiction between
what is espoused in the docs and what actually happens.

however, i see libtool is not directly culpable, so i cc
automake folks, instead, and change the subject line.
