I read this quoted part

     `_LDADD' and `_LIBADD' are inappropriate for passing
     program-specific linker flags (except for `-l', `-L', `-dlopen'
     and `-dlpreopen').  Use the `_LDFLAGS' variable for this purpose.

to imply that -l and -L flags are suitable to use in _LIBADD, and are
unsuitable for use in _LDFLAGS.  It isn't really clearly expressed

Perhaps this could be clarified in the automake/libtool manual...
