While it might not sound like a perfect idea, leaving the user able to provide
his own flags is usually a good idea, especially for distributions like Gentoo.

While the obvious example is that users can provide funky flags that break the
code, sometimes the flags are used instead to harden it, or to get proper debug
information; right now there is no way to pass -ggdb during the build of the
mono-debugger backend, thus to actually get data out of stepping into the code.

This also fixes what I think was something that was supposed to happen but
didn't: the warning flags being passed down the line to the compiler, indeed it
causes a huge list of warnings to be printed out that weren't before.

Note: I've put the flags after -g so that an user not wanting debug information
(yes I know it's silly for a debugger to be built without debug information,
but let's all go for consistency) can pass -g0.

Reproducible: Always
