+ <p>
+ The CXXFLAGS variable contains the flags you want to pass your compiler
+ when it is building C++ programs. These flags can contain optimizations
+ that you wish to use.
+ </p>
+
+ <p>
+ Please use sane settings as overoptimizations have an average effect. See
+ /etc/make.conf.examples for examples and sane defaults. For more
+ information about the possible flags, consult the <uri
+ link="http://gcc.gnu.org">GCC</uri> online documentation. More
+ specifically, the chapter on "Invoking GCC".

+ The FEATURES variable is a variable you can set in /etc/make.conf. See the
+ <uri
+ link="http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/handbook-x86.xml?part=2&amp;chap=3">Gentoo
+ Handbook</uri> for a sum up of possible features you can (de)activate
+ using this variable. Also see the make.conf manual page.
