We only take the -L flags from LDFLAGS for the shared library link.  This is 
probably a result of paranoia.  Can you think of a flag that is reasonable 
for a user to set in LDFLAGS by hand that should not end up in the shared 
library link?  Useful LDFLAGS I can think of are -L, -l, -R (or equivalent), 
debugging, optimization, profiling, and maybe some 32/64 bit selection, and 
all of these can be passed to the shared library link.  I'm not sure, 
however, about the assignments in Makefile.hpux.
