[opensuse-packaging] Python and CFLAGS

I am trying to compile in openSUSE 12.3 a program which uses "waf" to
build. It fails to detect Python.h because the test program is
compiled with -O0 and -D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2, and you can't use both at
the same time.

The FORTIFY_SOURCE part comes from waf using: "get_config_var('CFLAGS')".
And from what I can see that gets the CFLAGS used to build python
itself from %{_libdir}/python2.7/config/Makefile, from the python-base

Now, I don't know the first thing about the "Python way". So, can
somebody answer:

- There is really some use for Python defining this CFLAGS "config_var"?
- It's normal for the build systems to try to retrieve
get_config_var('CFLAGS')? Why?
- We really need a Makefile in python-base?
- And %{_libdir}/python2.7/config/Makefile.pre and
%{_libdir}/python2.7/config/ in python-devel?
- Should the python package be patched to remove "%{optflags}" from
