I'm quite sure it is the other way around.

LIBS should contain -l and full path to libraries only. LDFLAGS
should contain -L and (-rpath|+r|-R) (and maybe some other).

On some platforms (At least HPUX), it is required that the -L options
are before the -l options. I believe the standard require LDFLAGS to
be placed before LIBS when running ld, to make it run on any platform.

BTW: What is linker flag -s?
