In what way? And how then do these options break it?

I think that name is misleading, particularly compared to what
it means in other projects (essentially compiling with an explicit
-O0 or so).
Also it is quite a bit of non-obvious changes.
For example the proc=none setting is somewhat questionable, since
the desired effect is not to behave as if --target=generic was used
(which means no processor-specific optimizations - including assembler
code - at all)...
If it's only -march and -mcpu it seems preferable to filter out,
probably it would be easiest to just leave that up to everyone via
a sed command or otherwise in the cflag setting code.
