+In order to override standard build flags, export appropriate environment
+variables as documented in the L<dpkg-buildflags(1)> manual page. They will be
+preferred over directly exported their counterparts (CFLAGS, CXXFLAGS, LDFLAGS
+etc.). For example, to append -Wall to the standard CFLAGS and CXXFLAGS, use:
+
+ #!/usr/bin/make -f
+ export DEB_CFLAGS_APPEND = -Wall
+ export DEB_CXXFLAGS_APPEND = -Wall
