$ irb
irb(main):001:0> RbConfig::CONFIG['CFLAGS']
=> "-g -O2 -fdebug-prefix-map=/build/ruby2.3-TqM27i/ruby2.3-2.3.3=. -fstack-protector-strong -Wformat -Werror=format-security -fPIC"

AFAIK the popular extension building mechanisms (mkmf et al) use this
to discover the required build flags when compiling native extensions.
Maybe it does not matter in practice, but that is part of "figuring
it out" :-)
