The other thing is they're somewhat standard for unix Makefiles.  If there are environment variables defined

CFLAGS - for C flags
LDFLAGS - for LoaDer (linker) flags
CPPFLAGS - for C PreProcessor flags

then a lot of makefile will use those variables to pass to gcc et al.  Guess the short cryptic names dates back to early unix lazyness.
