I have some problems with buildlink3. I'm trying to build 
security/zebedee on Linux, but there are some libraries missing. So I 
thought I just included "../../cat/package/" and be happy.

But both archivers/bzip2 and archivers/zlib don't define the variable 
BUILDLINK_LDFLAGS to be "-lbz2" or "-lz", respectively. Is that the 
intended behaviour or do I just don't know buildlink3 good enough?

When I added the BUILDLINK_LDFLAGS in the bzip2 and zlib packages, 
everything went fine.
