Regarding M4: last time I checked you had a directory dedicated to
modules.  Why don't you simply use AM_LDFLAGS = -module in this

More generally I think adding an LT_LDFLAGS variable is not a
solution, because some day Bob will come and say "Now I need a global
LDFLAGS variable for standard libtool libraries, and another different
LDFLAGS for libtool modules; not being able to distinguish these two
sets of libraries is an extremely annoying (magnitude 42 on Richter's
scale) misfeature of Automake."

Maybe we need a way to apply flags to groups of files, and tying flags
to dir_PRIMARY variables (as in bin_PROGRAMS_LDFLAGS) would be an
