You asked me about the NGINX build. The current ebuild's src_prepare()
function[1] exemplifies how patches are applied and how sed is used to
replace 'make' with '$(MAKE)', update the installation configuration,

I'd rather avoid doing things that way, because I would have to revisit
it with every Unit release to check if it still works. Hence my hope
that you can add a '--cc-and-ld-flags-are-immutable' option or something
similar. ;-)
