Not 100% sure my problem wasn't because I messed up something else,
but at the time I did some builds where I needed to change ar flags, I
found the way the particular automake generated make files I could
not override ARFLAGS (or if it was AR_FLAGS) when generating, but had
to do it at "make" time. So to be safe I did

  % make AR="..." ARFLAGS="..." AR_FLAGS="..."
