Sure, but some evil software mix libtool with direct calls to the
compiler and linker.

And that's the reason why using lib*_la_LDFLAGS can help.
Of course it's not generic, so must be customized for each package and
therefore requires more work.
So it perfectly makes sense for someone maintaining a lot of cygwin packages.
In case of one particular upstream project, the other solution can be safer.
Please don't understand I say your solution is wrong, both have pros
and cons, that's all.

And as I said, as long as something gets merged into GLPK, I'll be happy.
