Supposing you mean the variable, then this is not an
option. We use LD_LIBRARY_PATH as a "development tool" to be able use
support libraries directly from checked out cvs working
directories. Using a static path in the's just does not
work here.

No, I am not talking about Automake's LDFLAGS variable although the LDFLAGS used by Autoconf is likely to end up there.

Consult the Autoconf documentation. :-)

Not again! ;)

Basically you would use syntax like:

 ./configure LDFLAGS='-L/foo -L/bar'
