OK. If you see a way it can be easily used only conditionnaly, feel free to propose it, I'd happily merge it.

To be honnest, I really don't know. I already had to upgrade my gnu make several times because some packages would not build in the past.

BTW, I have reworked the makefile a lot today. It's really cleaner and more compatible with your common uses. I attach the patch. Your build scripts will be happy with the cflags. I even tried it on freebsd with gnu make and it worked there too!

I'm attaching the patch if you want to take a look at it (I've pushed it into git anyway).
