cvs-fast-export (1.35-1) unstable; urgency=medium

Special thanks to John E. Wulff for the fix. (Closes: #801110)
* Edit Makefile to respect CFLAGS from the environment so that
DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS=noopt and hardening flags are honoured.
(Closes: #801108)

and other potential incompatibility problems.
* Fix reproducible issues with Asciidoc-generated timestamp.
