Description Gustavo Noronha (kov) 2009-02-12 16:55:37 PST
The autoconf build system was recently modified to call AC_PROG_CXX. This macro is adding -g and -O2 to CXXFLAGS, which ends up making the build have debug symbols.

While searching for a way to protect CXXFLAGS from modification I found webkit.m4 where WEBKIT_INIT (which is called by our configure.ac) is defined. There is already an AC_PROG_CXX call there, which protects CXXFLAGS against changes, and which is expanded as part of WEBKIT_INIT, so adding a second call without the protection is no good.

I tested automake1.10 here after removing the second call, and it did not complain about it missing, so I am not sure an issue actually exists.

I'm afraid to say this is my fault, due to a computer that had a broken autotools installation. The original code was in fact correct, and this change should be reverted.
