New submission from STINNER Victor <vstinner at redhat.com>:
"make coverage" modifies CFLAGS and LIBS, Makefile.pre.in:
@echo "Building with support for coverage checking:"
$(MAKE) clean profile-removal
$(MAKE) @DEF_MAKE_RULE@ CFLAGS="$(CFLAGS) -O0 -pg -fprofile-arcs -ftest-coverage" LIBS="$(LIBS) -lgcov"
CFLAGS_NODIST should be used instead here. I'm not sure about LIBS: do we need LIBS_NODIST, as we have CFLAGS_NODIST? LIBS_NODIST would be used for Python and C extensions of the stdlib, but not for third-party C extensions: not used by distutils.
See also bpo-35257: "Avoid leaking linker flags into distutils: add PY_LDFLAGS_NODIST".
