Yes. LDFLAGS on the configure line will work for most packages.

I'm sure I pointed out to Ryan at some stage that   make LDFLAGS="-s"   was
redundant if already exported into the environment :-)  The only packages
that need it on the command line are the non-bootstrapped gcc and binutils
plus a few misc packages like bzip2, flex, e2fsprogs & netkit-base. There is
a note in the hint about this.

Starting to wish I never put the flags stuff into the hint as it is
distracting from the main focus.
