The configure script is generated by autoconf and it is true of all
autoconf generated configured scripts that the default is -g which
follows GNU Project guidelines.  However you can easily provide any
particular combination of compiler flags that you prefer.  The
following are examples.

  CFLAGS='-O' ./configure

Or in my case I usually use the following.

  CC=cc CFLAGS='-O +DAportable +DS2.0' ./configure
