Not the only variable, but the whole set above. On purpose.

AFAIK, this is the expected behaviour. When you build using devtools,
you expect variables local to this machine/user to be respected (and
that is the exact list of variables listed above), while distro settings
for everything else to be used ({C,CXX,LD}FLAGS mostly).

I don’t think you need to know about and thus ever touch
`/usr/share/devtools/*.conf`. Unless you actually develop devtools
