I agree, this was a lazy fix on my part to enable some expected
functionality (scraping, add-ons) because I could not figure out how to
pass LDFLAGS (the environment variable was not enough).

Will work on a proper fix; adding it to the 'kodi-test' executable
should also sort the failing web tests, methinks.
