Thanks, cool.

The quoted part of the manual does not mention the `maude_LDFLAGS'
variable.  I was suggesting in <874pldi4l3.fsf at chbouib.org> to use
`_LDFLAGS', not `_LIBADD' nor `_LDADD'.

The manual isn't very verbose about `_LDFLAGS' actually:

       This variable is used to pass extra flags to the link step of a
       program or a shared library.

Nevertheless, `$(GUILE_LDFLAGS)' probably logically belongs in
`_LDFLAGS' rather than `_LDADD' or `_LIBADD'.

Yes it does!

But using `_LDFLAGS' might be nicer...  :-)
