Passing flags with mode=link

I spend a few hours before I realized that libtool did not pass to linker flags 
other than -L -l -Wl, and -Xlinker. It's totally confusing as in compile mode 
libtool pass all flags to compiler.
Currently there are no way to pass flags like -static-libgcc to linker except 
editing makefile/configure.
Common way of setting required flags by setting LDFLAGS before configure didn't 
work because simple flag "-static-libgcc" will be ignored by libtool and flag 
"-XCClinker -static-libgcc" will cause configure fail on GCC tests.
Moreover, currently many configure tests can be incorrect as configure test 
pure GCC/linker with LDFLAGS (and some flags can modify GCC/linker results) but 
during "make" stage libtool filter many linker flags and linker works not as 
configure expect.
I suggest to pass all flags to linker, as in compile mode.
