[Bug 637652] Re: mailman should respect LDFLAGS

Hi,

Debian and Ubuntu use hardened build flags. Such flags are especially
relevant for a package like Mailman that uses setgid.

In order to make full use of available hardening features, we need to
pass CPPFLAGS and LDFLAGS, but Mailmans Makefile currently not allows
that, so we need to patch it. It would be great if attached patch could
be applied by Mailman upstream, as it doesn't have a drawback if you're
not using the flags.

Thanks,
Thijs
