Description:
When building .o objects with mwcc we need to use the -object flag in order to be able to create the 
static libs later.

If we add -object to LDFLAGS then configure fails as it tries to use -object when building conftest.c.

We need to be able to add LDFLAGS w/o using those flags when building executables.

How to repeat:
Download 4.0.20.
tar xzvf mysql-4.0.20.tar.gz
cd mysql-4.0.20
./do-configure (posted with report)

Suggested fix:
We need a way to be able to specify options to be used when creating all the .o object files which isn't 
used when building executables.
