Default LDPATH and CPPFLAGS values are empty, making all AC_LIB_CHECK

/usr/local. Whereas an knowledgeable user will export these variable
before running ./configure, many other will just be unable to build
software properly (and some maintainers may even workaround it by
introducing configure wrappers, I've seen it).

Is there any disadvantage setting default values to thoses variables in, such as:

Or is there any other recommended practice ?
