Yeah, which is why in my original re-write of src/Makefile I didn't pass
these flags on. But apparently some people like to be able to do "make
OPTIM=-g" instead of editing Configuration, and the patch made this work
in all subdirs.

It would be nice. But didn't we want to make as few changes as possible in
regex in case there was another release we had to upgrade to? If we can
make changes in there I would like to move Makefile to Makefile.tmpl, and
also make the default target "all" instead of "r" (which does regression
tests) so that regex can be treated like all other subdirs.
