Libassuan: enable the environment to set compiler and linker flags for helper tools
Open, NormalPublic

Description

Libassuan includes at least one locally-built program mkheader that needs to be run on the machine while building.

It uses $(CC_FOR_BUILD) but does not pass through any arguments from the environment.

Libassuan should allow the environment to set flags specific to this build (we don't want to use standard CFLAGS etc because those could be quite different in the case of cross-compilation).

I've just pushed rA45f01593d4ce794ae3562359aee2ff80c97e368e to the dkg-fix-T4641 branch that resolves this.

I don't know why dkg-fix-T4641 is not showing up here on the assuan git repo.
