Subject: [PATCH] Use LDFLAGS when testing linker flags


This is another patch for the WebAssembly build.

In Wasm, we currently need to pass some extra flags to the linker, and LDFLAGS would seem to be a good way to do this.

The patch below tests the linker by passing LDFLAGS on the link line. This ought to be a safe change to make?
