C also has "volatile", with (I thought?) the same semantics: don't
optimise access.

Here's a way to do this in current automake, compiling foo.c into bar
and into baz, but with different flags:

bin_PROGRAMS = bar baz
bar_LDADD = libfoo_bar.a
baz_LDADD = libfoo_baz.a

noinst_LIBRARIES = libfoo_bar.a libfoo_baz.a
libfoo_bar_a_SOURCES = foo.c
libfoo_baz_a_SOURCES = foo.c
libfoo_bar_a_CFLAGS = -O3
libfoo_baz_a_CFLAGS = -O0

You'll also need AM_PROG_CC_C_O in configure.ac.
