The compilation of the C++ files of the octclip package ignore the setting of the environment variables CFLAGS and CXXFLAGS.

The patch attached to this bug report fixes the problem. It is being applied to the Debian package octave-octclip, such that hardening flags like -fstack-protector-strong, -Wformat, and -Werror=format-security are used in the compilation. (See https://wiki.debian.org/Hardening)
