LD not precious?

Silly question, but I was working on a particular project (dahdi-tools) and I 
noticed that the value of LD that was passed to "configure" didn't get saved 
into "makeopts".

I hacked the file as:

--- dahdi-tools-2.2.0/ 2009-01-16 06:18:10.000000000 -0800
+++ dahdi-tools-2.2.0/      2010-01-13 17:16:00.000000000 -0800
@@ -29,6 +29,8 @@ fi
 # This needs to be before any macros that use the C compiler
 # Checks for programs.

and this seems to work, but this left me wondering why "LD" isn't a precious 
variable, just like "CC" is.

Looking at the contents of /usr/share/autoconf/autoconf/ for autoconf 2.63, I'm 
not seeing \<LD\> anywhere.

Is that an oversight? I ask because in a cross-compilation environment, getting 
CC and LD right are equally important.
