Because they control the building of the toolchain (or at least that's how
I understand it).

I don't really understand this remark (and it's not true, as my messages
have documented). "Magically" indeed!
Maybe you mean why am I looking at these flags when they're supposed to be
managed inside the crosstool builder? Perfectly reasonable question, but
the answer's rather obvious: because the crosstool builder doesn't
actually work (for me, as I've documented)!
In case it's not clear, I'm talking about Yann Morin's crosstool-ng (I
don't know if this list covers other crosstool builders?
