[Build-common-hackers] Bug#205743: cdbs: shouldn't clobber CFLAGS in makefile

Package: cdbs
Severity: normal

I'm attempting to convert keepalived to cdbs; however, it would appear that
the autotools.mk rules expect automake to be used.  Keepalived uses only
autoconf; in one of its Makefile.in's, it contains the following:

CC   = @CC@
INCLUDES = -I../include -I../../lib
       -Wall -Wunused -Wstrict-prototypes

    $(COMPILE) -c $<

When using a rules file similar to:

include /usr/share/cdbs/1/rules/debhelper.mk
include /usr/share/cdbs/1/class/autotools.mk
DEB_CONFIGURE_EXTRA_FLAGS := --with-kernel-dir=$(CURDIR)/debian

the CFLAGS in the makefile gets clobbered.  It's set correctly during
configuration; the resulting Makefile contains:

CFLAGS   = -g -Wall -O2 -I/home/dilinger/keepalived-1.0.3/debian/include $(INCLUDES) \
       -Wall -Wunused -Wstrict-prototypes

Unfortunately, DEB_MAKE_INVOKE appears to expect automake to have put
upstream CFLAGS into CFLAGS_<pkg>, and clobbers CFLAGS.  If I rename
the CFLAGS variable in Makefile.in to CFLAGS_keepalived, it allows keepalived
to compile, but this really shouldn't be necessary.
