[Rd] Can one set CFLAGS/CXXFLAGS during R INSTALL ?

As far as I can see, and even test, R COMPILE CXXFLAGS="..." foo.c works
just fine and passes the desired options on to gcc/g++.

I have not been able to find a way to do this with R INSTALL foo*.tar.gz,
other than by edting $RHOME/etc/Makeconf. 

While editing Makeconf is probably good enough for most users, it is not
something I can do during (automated, unattended) builds of Debian packages.
However, I need this to change the optimization switches for the survival
package as some of the cox*.c files kill gcc with -O, -O1 or -O2 on the m68k
architecture (see bugs.debian.org/135943 or buildd.debian.org and search for
r-recommended for details).

Is there an easy way to control these compiler switches?

Thanks, Dirk
