After further investigation, to get iOS working, I just need an option
to disable the "Check for Mac OS X SDK settings" block including
C*FLAG manipulations. IMO, it would make sense to keep this block in
configure.ac, so we don't force the user to use the configure script
and to retain the --with-macosx-sdk option, which is really handy.
For iOS, I can set all the flags I need in the respective build
script. Due to the port's architecture, it will never be necessary to
run configure manually, so that's fine.

Best regards,
