I think the HPUX flags would be ok; leastwise, if they are not, I'll
soon find out ;-).

If you think this would be a good change, go ahead and make it.  I'd
suggest however that there needs to be a way for the Makefile.port files
to supply loader flags that are used only for executables.  It doesn't
have to be called LDFLAGS though...
