I want to have a single configure option which enables all gcc (and 
whatever) flags I as application developer should use, i.e. I want full 
debug information and all (sensible) warnings for my build of kdepim 
and I want full debug information for my build of kdelibs. I don't have 
the time to study the meaning of one million different gcc flags in 
order to figure out the right mix. So either publish the preferred list 
of flags in a prominent place (just like in README.qt-copy) or add a 
few easily understandable configure flags to KDE's build system.
