Well, the LDFLAGS, CPPFLAGS, CFLAGS approach is intrinsic to autoconf/automake.

It's just a standard use-case of autoconf/automake, which doesn't need special casing. It also is the standard use-case, how distribution packagers apply autoconf/automake.

Exactly. There is a lot of confusion about this topic around, and a lot of uncooked recipes around, seemingly stemming from people who never used multilibs and multiarched systems.

There is another case that we handle as well: some libs provide a
-config script, e.g. apr-1-config, so you can specify
These kind of config scripts are problem-zone of their own, because many of them are not multilib-ready.

E.g. many projects *-config scripts which stem off from early gtk-config/glib-config ... unfortunately, these were not multilib ready.
