The CPPFLAGS from the environment is not honored by src/Makefile. 

In lines 63 to 65 of src/Makefile.in, there is this code:

# Support Debian Hardening flags
# https://wiki.debian.org/HardeningWalkthrough#Handling_dpkg-buildflags_in_your_upstream_build_system

This is great, but useless, because there is the following code in line 128:

CFLAGS := -fexceptions -fPIC -fno-omit-frame-pointer -pthread

In order to honor the dpkg-buildflags environment in a Debian system, it is necessary to apply the patch attached to this bug report.
