LDFLAGS is expanded and added to the environment for both the
"configure"  and "build" targets. Moreover, I can see that LDFLAGS is
passed down from the configure script for at least one of the
"Makefile"'s, just from looking at the patches in rrdtool/patches.

To fix this, I would look at the resulting "Makefile"'s after running
"make configure" from the top. If it's still not obvious what's wrong,
it may help to run "gmake -n" from within the package, looking closely
at the link stage commands.
