As we've discussed before, this overriding behavior only exists
because we need some way to override Fortran compiler flags since the
code will always be a little bit out of date with respect to the
various new versions of the Fortran compilers that we support. C
extensions are left alone because the link flags are almost always
correct because the C compiler is almost always the one used to build

enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as
though it had an underlying truth."
