I have never been in this situation, so perhaps the idea below
has flaws that I can't see.  Basically my impression is that in
this case, `-g -O2' is not some option that the user selected.
So it makes sense to override them locally.  However if the user
really had set CFLAGS, you should not override this setting: the
user should always have the last say.

Given this, I think I'd replace AC_PROG_CC by

if test "x$user_CFLAGS" = x; then
  # If the user didn't specify CFLAGS, then CFLAGS contains
  # a subset of -g -O2 selected by AC_PROG_CC.  This is not
  # a user setting, and we want to be able to override this
  # locally in our rules, so put these flags in a separate
  # variable and empty CFLAGS.

and in use
  libfoo_a_CFLAGS = $(DEFAULTFLAGS) $(O3)
as appropriate.

($(O3) being the Makefile variable that contains -O3 if the compiler
support it).

Does that sound sensible?
