readline 5.0 LDFLAGS installation problem

On some platforms such as GNU/Linux, LDFLAGS is passed to gcc.  On
others such as NetBSD, it is passed to ld.  This makes things
difficult for an installation script that wants to be portable, and
wants to pass special flags like -R.  It would be helpful if ld were
always invoked by way of gcc, so that arbitrary flags could be used in
LDFLAGS (protected by "-Wl," if they are not meaningful to gcc).

This is true for 4.3 too, but I don't think I reported it before,
