I apologize for the confusion. I did a mass bug reporting which was semi-automated and this particular bug report got a messed description.

This bug report concerns the parallel package, indeed.

The summary is on the 'parallel' package, the patch seems to be against the 'parallel' package, too, but the description is on the 'octproj' package and mentions the debian package 'octave-octclip'. ?

The compilation of the C files of the octproj package ignores the setting of the environment variables CFLAGS, CPPFLAGS, 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 -D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2, -fstack-protector-strong, -Wformat, and -Werror=format-security are used in the compilation. (See https://wiki.debian.org/Hardening)
