It should be possible for the user to build a package doing

I don't think this should be allowed: MPFR does some tests at
configure time based on the current environment. If the user
modifies the environment at make time, the configure tests no
longer make sense (e.g. modifying LDFLAGS at make time can select
a different GMP version). So, if the user does this, it is up to

Actually, the user should be allowed to shoot themselves in the foot if they request it. LDFLAGS should be set including the user-provided setting during the entire configure run so test results should be valid. I know that MPFR configure does work differently than almost any other software package.
