looks to me that the minimal support for such variables is really 
intended to force the user to specify a full replacement

the attached patch adds support for EXTRA_LDFLAGS_SHLIB that allows the 
user to add to the hardcoded flags

the lack of such support for the other variables is a glaring 
inconsistency, but I'm scared to mess with 1.3 too much

with this, when people hit the lovely gcc issue with unresolved 
references to libgcc.a in DSOs they are able to do something like the 


-lgcc' CC=gcc OPTIM='-g' ./configure --enable-module=most 
--enable-shared=max --prefix=/jeff/1327
