#573: numpy does not build when LDFLAGS are set

 Please don't reopen wontfix tickets; it's rude. Only do that for bugs that
 we thought were fixed.

 The reason we need to override these flags is because Fortran compilers
 change. We don't always have the most up-to-date set of flags that a
 particular Fortran compiler needs to link a Python extension. The presence
 of incorrect flags completely prevents the extension from being built
 correctly. Consequently, we need a way to completely override the flags.
 In the current incarnation of numpy.distutils, this is LDFLAGS and

 David Cournapeau is currently experimenting using !SCons underneath
 distutils to build extensions, and it has a better way to completely
 override the flags. This is probably the way forward.

 However, if you have a patch to the trunk which addresses both of our
 concerns, you may re-open this ticket.
