makepkg.conf is imo the way to go, because things are up to the user, how hot
he wants his builds to get. I also concur with auguste's opinion that PKGUBILD
is not the place to make this kind (rather machine-dependent) setting.

thanks for bringing this up btw, I used to add this stuff manually to the
custom kernels' PKGBUILDs I use.
