   sanitize LDFLAGS variable

   it seems that dpkg-buildflags injects -Wl,-Bsymbolic-functions to
   LDFLAGS, which breaks the build on amd64. The exact cause is unclear,
   but our current theory is that -Bsymbolic-functions disables -Bsymbolic,
   on which the build system relies:

Looks like Ubuntu to me - I have not noticed this on Debian, but have heard of other similar situations of Ubuntu aggresively applying "funky" things by default on their autobuilders.

-# XXX this probably needs fixing
+# Sanitize injected compiler in linker flags

Please add a reference to the reasoning in that comment - is seems pretty useless as is.

And I strongly recommend to file bugreports to the compile environment (Ubuntu, Debian, whatever) which triggers this problem so it does not go unnoticed.
