I guess Jeffrey was intending to use AM_CXXFLAGS which is overridden by

I don't fully understand the "static initialization fiasco", however the
next entry in the FAQ [1] seems to suggest that it can be avoided
programmatically using a function wrapper instead of relying on the
linking order.

If this kind of issue is common in C++, I think it would be good to
give a hint in the Automake manual on how to solve it.
