I don't know the build system for this program (and this is a generic bug template so I cannot tell you which program exactly is), but my tests shows that it's not respecting CFLAGS properly.
Please look into it, since it's important to respect user CFLAGS.
I no longer own the hardware for this package, is anyone in mobile@ interested in this package?

- honors CFLAGS, CC
- bump to 1.33
- changed HOMEPAGE, SRC_URI

Here's an updated ebuild which also fixes LDFLAGS and the CC variable.
I tested it and it works for me (Dell Inspiron E1505 on ~amd64)
So, if anyone wants to bump a package and squash three bugs (this, bug 243602 and 337349), look no further!
