net-p2p/bitcoin: How much of this sed script is actually required?

As the maintaner of this port, I'll be updating it soon, as the new
version is currently in rc.
I'd like to clean up this sed script applied to a makefile, but I
don't know how much of it might be requred. For reference, the port
builds and works with only the last one - removal of "-l dl".

Are any of these things required for reasons I am not aware of?

@cd ${WRKSRC}/src && ${CP} -p makefile.unix Makefile
        @${REINPLACE_CMD} \
                -e 's|^CXXFLAGS=.*$$|CXXFLAGS += $$(DEFS)|' \
                -e 's|^USE_UPNP.*$$||' \
                -e 's|-l pthread|${PTHREAD_LIBS}|g' \
                -e 's:-O3::' -e 's:-\(march=[A-Za-z0-9]*\)::g' \
                -e 's:-l dl::' \

Also worthy of note: These changes only have an effect when this port
is built as a command-line daemon. This Makefile is not used when
building it as a Qt GUI (default, and most common). If there are any
important items here, they could be applied to the GUI's makefile.

For reference, the original Makefile is attached.

P.S. Appologies if this message has already been recieved - I have my
mailing list mail sent to a +address, and my normal address was not
subscribed to the list, so I was not sure if it had perhaps been
rejected. So I am resending it after subscribing my unadorned address.
