There is a new video release 2.0.0 and I guess this can be closed now

The addition of 'AC_SUBST(CXXFLAGS)' to configure.ac is redundant because it is already AC_SUBST'd automatically by AC_PROG_CXX. But it's fine if the maintainer wants it to be explicit.

'AC_SUBST(CPPFLAGS)' is also builtin and could be removed.

Confirmed that if 'configure' is called with CXXFLAGS in the environment, those options are not passed on to the Makefile, and this patch looks like it does the right thing.

In the video package, src/Makefile ignores the environment variable CXXFLAGS.  This precludes the inclusion of user- or system-defined flags, for instance, the hardening flags when building a Debian package.  The patch attached to this bug reports fixes the problem.
