It was discovered that for some people, on specific software
packages only, LDFLAGS=-static as an arg to make was being
ignored. Thus, it is passed before configure now on these
offending packages.

I've discovered recently that it is also needed before static
gawk on my uclibc system. Perhaps setting LDFLAGS before
configure is something we should consider changing globally.
