Hm ... I'll have to look over the and files.  I don't 
think there was anything that overrode these.  However, I've been learning and 
have found that I made so many changes along the way, I'm probably forgetting

This was done out of desperation to get those flags into the compiler because 
I've got a strange segfault when loading this library on Ubuntu.  The nice 
thing is that I can get away with some assumptions like this.  This tool isn't 
used outside of the company and we will be building with gcc for Linux.

Thanks for confirming my understanding.  Now, I'll have to weed through the 
files to see where I left something, or placed something new, that overrides 
the flags placed on the command line.
