This is, I think, the main point. Ignoring LDFLAGS doesn't need to delay a change in the default LDFLAGS because they aren't seen in that case anyway so the package is no more broken than before. Both ignoring the flags entirely and breaking with this specific flag are bugs, but they're separate bugs and can be treated separately. -- Duncan - List replies preferred. No HTML msgs.
