I'm afraid I don't understand the reference to autotools here. Are you
embedding the build of notmuch in some packaging system that thinks
everything is autotools?  I agree with Tomi that changing this one
relatively minor use of CC in isolation does not make sense.  I'm not
opposed to upstreaming packaging inspired changes, but generally I would
like to see how they help more than just one packager.
