Sometimes passing variables to tools/build is dangerous. For example, on
my platform there is a gcc problem (gcc 4.8.1):

It passes the stackprotector-all feature check:

  $ gcc -fstack-protector-all -c ./test.c
  $ echo $?

But requires LDFLAGS support if separate compiling and linking:
  $ gcc -fstack-protector-all -c ./test.c
  $ gcc ./test.o
  ./test.o: In function `main':
  test.c:(.text+0xb): undefined reference to `__stack_chk_guard'
  test.c:(.text+0x21): undefined reference to `__stack_chk_guard'
  collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
  $ gcc -fstack-protector-all ./test.o
  $ echo $?
  $ gcc ./test.o -lssp
  $ echo $?

In this environment building perf throws an error:

  $ make
    BUILD:   Doing 'make -j24' parallel build
  config/Makefile:344: No libunwind found. Please install libunwind-dev[el] >= 1.1 and/or set LIBUNWIND_DIR

  collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
  make[2]: *** [fixdep] Error 1
  make[1]: *** [fixdep] Error 2
  make: *** [all] Error 2

This is because the CFLAGS used in building perf pollutes the CFLAGS
used for fixdep, passing -fstack-protector-all to buiold fixdep which is
obviously not required. Since fixdep is a small host side tool, we
should keep its CFLAGS/LDFLAGS simple and clean.

This patch clears the CFLAGS and LDFLAGS passed when building fixdep, so
such gcc problem won't block the perf build process.
