I think that LDFLAGS overriding is in some situations bad for newer 
libtool, as it is used with some postgresql contrib makefiles and 

LIBS are added to LDFLAGS where they really should be added to
This causes incorrect order in the linker command-line, which fails in 
building shared libs. A similar problem as with building php.
