Will do in a follow-up patch series, soon enough.

They are not "problems" IMO; simply, some checks has been tightened when
they have been moved from Automake runtime to GNU make runtime.  Since
this enhanced warnings can be very easily silenced (with the help of
the AM_VARTYPOS_WHITELIST special variable) or avoided (renaming an
offending 'FOO_LDFLAGS' variable to, say, 'FOO-LDFLAGS'), I don't see
any issue here.
