I'm looking for a way to tell configure _not_ to look in a directory for libraries, in this case /usr/local/lib. This would be the inverse of LDFLAGS='-L/usr/local/lib'.

How would you like to handle the case where the compiler looks in /usr/local/lib by default, and there is no way to tell it not to look there other than by disabling all of its defaults?

I have noticed that packages which use pkg-config can cause paths like /usr/local/lib to be picked up. Pkg-config is not part of autoconf, but configure scripts commonly use it.
