I'd like to request for small change.
As I see, in almost all files CXXFLAGS variables are
set manually.

When user want's to customize these flags, automake throws:

Src/UnitTest/ `CXXFLAGS' is a user variable, you should
not override it;
Src/UnitTest/ use `AM_CXXFLAGS' instead.

Automake book says:

"These variables are considered user variables. Setting
them in `' is unsafe, because the user will
expect to be able to override them at will."

Following FAQ includes short explanation of it too:

Do you mind to change CXXFLAGS variable to AM_CXXFLAGS macro
(supported by automake >= 1.4) ?

Thanks in advance.
