[linux-audio-dev] Can software authors make allowances for packagers?

Hi all
I am busy packaging software for Slackware and trying to compile for a 
specific architecture. The one problem I am finding with several packages, 
is that the configure scripts obtain the architecture of the host system, 
and ignore the CFLAGS variable set that contains arguments for the compiler 
to compile for a specific architecture.

I am wondering whether anybody has some work-work-arounds that might work 
on all packages, or could developers possibly provide a configure 
command-line argument to allow a packager to compile for a specific 
architecture, other than their own? For example I am running an i686 
system, whereas I want to compile for an i586 based system.
