Both are true :) If you build with numscons, then the flags are
extended. If you build with distutils, the flags are overriden.
The wiki could be made clearer there.

The flag issue is a distutils issue, and happens whenever you call
setup.py. You should not try to edit flags if you build with distutils,
really - the overriding support implies that it should be used as last
resort, and otherwise, everything should be handled within distutils.
