        If you read ./configure --help, it has helpful pointers on what you can 
specify on the command line to get things to work properly; If the project 
conforms to GNU autotools conventions, the proper way to do things is: CPPFLAGS 
for -D / -I flags on that will get passed to cc / cpp, CFLAGS for anything else 
that needs to be passed to cc directly, LDFLAGS for everything minus -lfoo 
flags, LDLIBS for everything like -lfoo.
        You need to specify the -rpath junk in LDFLAGS (just provided the 
background to make sure that you had a consistent understanding of how things 
are from an autotools perspective).

PS FreeBSD at least doesn't have the level of complexity with CPPFLAGS, and 
displaces LDLIBS for LDADD -- just a sidenote.
