Task #11664: cleaning *FLAGS in Portfiles

Hi all,

Since 1.4.1, MacPorts automatically fills *FLAGS with -I${prefix}/ 
include and -L${prefix}/lib.
We can remove a lot of unnecessary lines from portfiles. I suggest  
that every maintainer clean their own ports and check that they still  
compile fine (preferably with the -t option). You can figure out  
which ports to clean with:

port file maintainer:<your maintainer email address> | xargs grep FLAGS

Besides, other clfags/ldflags/cppflags/cxxflags can now be passed with:
configure.cflags-append	"some value"
