Further, (and I promise to stop spamming the list now), 
AM_LDFLAGS gets referenced in my by the line:

LINK = $(LIBTOOL) --mode=link $(CCLD) $(AM_CFLAGS) $(CFLAGS) \
        $(AM_LDFLAGS) $(LDFLAGS) -o $@

but an attempt to set AM_LDFLAGS in gives the error
"invalid unused variable name: `AM_LDFLAGS'"

I cannot set AM_LIBADD or AM_LDADD either (they return similar errors).

However, I _can_ set AM_LIBS, as "AM_LIBS = $(MYLIBS)",
but it doesn't get used anywhere in

Which of AM_LDADD, AM_LIBADD, AM_LDFLAGS, and AM_LIBS are meant to be

My guess is that the reference to AM_LDFLAGS in the link line is a mistake,
and that AM_LIBS is the only one which should work if any of them do.
