Thanks Stefan - I'd suggest those project could do better - they could use
in their top-level GNUmakefile


the 'export' will cause it to be automatically passed down to all
subprojects, so they would set this only once in their top-level
GNUmakefile, and it's easy to turn it on/off.

(If their top-level project has got any compilation target which require
special flags *not* to be passed down, they can be put in an xxx_CPPFLAGS
