Hi Alexsey - yes, that little change in flags.m4 is what I did for 8217305.

I'm just feeling my way in the new process, so I pushed to our internal 

Paul I was pleased to see your keyword addition, and the approval.  I 
didn't quite know if it meant you were taking the change I mentioned and 
getting it into the open 8u-dev (you're probably aware that in 8u with 
these build ones, we make the .m4 change, then run autogen.sh to 
regenerated generated-autoconfigure.sh, pushing both).  If you are, 
that's great.  If you aren't, I'll do it as I have it in my head, and it 
appears to be approved. 8-)
