Hi Sean - Some Python ports require these variables to be set in
multiple phases. I don't think setting them in multiple phases hurts the
other ports (those that get the flags during configure or build, and
don't use them in any other phase). Things seem to work right now, and
adding these variables -- at least to me -- isn't a big deal. - MLD
