Quoting from section 5, Library Build Instructions, of our README

      To  change  preprocessor, compiler,  or  linker  options you  can
      either set the make variables CPPOPTS, CXXOPTS, and LDOPTS on the
      command  line  (recommended,  except   with  HP  aCC)  or  modify
      ${BUILDDIR}/  The  second option is  recommended when
      compiling  with HP  aCC (as  the compiler  looks  for environment
      variables with the same names).

When using HP aCC, you can prefix the names of each of the variables
with an underscore (i.e., _CPPOPTS, _CXXOPTS, and _LDOPTS) to get the
same effect.
