I read about git and signing things, and I have done several tutorials.
But I am an old dog - having trouble learning the new tricks :)

As to this particular problem - I think the patch 'causing' this is 
poorly architected as
my suspicion is that there are multiple locations where "cflags" are 
being tested and set.
IMHO - these would be better 'determined' aka set in one location, and 
used where needed.
(I am thinking specifically about the code at about line 90 where the 
boolean tested at line 720-something
  is set.)
