I am very sorry for that.  The reason we need to pick flags is for
portability.  Also, configure liked to give -g -O2 by itself, which
fails with non-gcc compilers.  That is why the CFLAGS were set.

I've committed svn r1317 that picks up the CFLAGS at configure time.

Looks good.

In 1.1 there is going to be a remote-control feature, for which some TLS
keys need to be generated (unbound-control-setup script).  That could be
part of the RPM as well, and would be data that needs world-readable=no.
