The link command here is:

  /bin/sh ../../libtool --tag=CC --mode=link ccache gcc -std=gnu99
  -D_REENTRANT -D_THREAD_SAFE [... CFLAGS ...] -I../../lgl -I../../lgl
  -I/usr/local/include -pthread -D_REENTRANT -D_THREAD_SAFE
  -Wno-pointer-sign -pthread -lguile -lltdl -L/usr/local/lib -lgmp
  -lcrypt -lm -lltdl -o libguile-gnutls-v-0.la -rpath /usr/local/lib
  libguile_gnutls_v_0_la-core.lo libguile_gnutls_v_0_la-errors.lo
  libguile_gnutls_v_0_la-utils.lo ../../lib/libgnutls.la

That is, `_LDFLAGS' appear before `_LIBADD', which we don't want.  Is it
the same at your place?

It's not that it doesn't work, just that the relative order of
`_LDFLAGS' and `_LIBADD' is not specified.

I'm using Debian's package, version 1.5.22-4.
