I am afraid you misunderstood the meaning of 'AFLAGS'.

AFLAGS is not 'Additional flags', but 'Assembler flags'
that are used for compiling *.S files.

AFLAGS for host programs is weird.



I see similar proposals from different people.

I replied like follows:

However, Robin seems busy lately.

I will wait a bit, then
if nobody does this, I may do it.
