I just tried today:

# git clean -dfx
#  grep XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX config/Tools.mk

The empty [] in AC_ARG_WITH() is what is supposed to be executed if
--with*-foo was not specified. In this case nothing will be done with
EXTRA_QEMUU_CONFIGURE_ARGS. Later AC_SUBST() takes the environment
variable and does the substitution.  And the same happens if I replace
"EXTRA_QEMUU_CONFIGURE_ARGS" with "seabios_path" in my example.

I think this should not happen. To fix it the empty [] should be filled
with "variable=", like "seabios_path=".

What do you think?

Yes, looks like it. I will update my patch to handle also the "no" due
to --without-extra-cflags-*.
