Personally, I think you've looked at the script at far too low a level. 
  The book will continue to advocate not setting CFLAGS, or any other 
such environment changes unless it is *absolutely necessary* for a 
package to build/test correctly...having said that, even then I'd much 
rather submit a bug report upstream in that case.  Relying on the 
behaviour of a particular optimisation setting is a very dangerous game 
to be getting into, IMNSHO.

Once I'm done with the remaining 6.1 issues I'll set up a branch for 
this so we can get this dealt with.  I still don't think there's any 
particular rush though, seeing as though they've still got an RC2 to 
release, then the real release, and getting upstream devs aware of their 
respective patches.
