Hi guys Ive got a small problem with the autotools, I have got a project that is getting a bit big and so have started using autogen and the othe auto tools to handle the makefiles etc, no problem there but I cant get automake to stop !"$%^%& puting the -g -O2 optimizations onto the end of the g++ command this makes debugging impossible! I just can't override the damned thing, Ive tried the various docs and man pages but no joy!
Please help otherwise Ive got to go bake to manually makeing my Makefiles](*,)

Look in configure.ac for any CXXFLAGS containing the offending arguments. If not in there, look in the Makefile.am files.

Thanks I added 'CXXFLAGS= "-ggdb -O0"' and problem solved!
But if these 'auto programs' are going to set flags by default they should at least document what the hell they are doing!!!
Anyway thanks a lot:)
