Just tell it to configure, say:
CC=gcc CXX=g++ CFLAGS="-g -O2 -mtune=generic -DNDEBUG=1" \
 ../configure --prefix=/usr --enable-add-ons=nptl,libidn \
 --without-cvs --enable-kernel=2.6.9 --with-headers=/usr/include \
 --enable-bind-now --with-tls --with-__thread --build x86_64-redhat-linux \
 --host x86_64-redhat-linux

If I understand correctly, doing so will override the CFLAGS that were meant to be passed originally. How do I know I don't break things ? For example, I tried: CFLAGS="-g" ../glibc-2.5/configure but during make it shouted it cannot be compiled without optimizations, so now I'm trying: CFLAGS="-O2 -g" ../glibc-2.5/configure

but how do I know I'm not breaking something else ? even worse, maybe some
parts of the glibc needs X flags and some other parts need Y flags ?
Ideally I would just *add* arbitrary flag, and not override them all..

But maybe I'm just over-paranoid here and the only problem is the missing -O2
flag.. ?

Thank You again !
