Some projects' code outputs the flags at the end of configure,
I think that's a nice overview, but actually, that's outside automake ;-)

As for automake, this lil hack could do something similar

        # -*- Makefile -*-

        BUILT_SOURCES = show-flags
                @echo CFLAGS used: ${AM_CFLAGS} ${CFLAGS}
