Really?  I suppose there might be platforms where this matters, like SGI with its -n32/-o32 switches for different binary formats.  

So, I have no objections to the patch; I'll check it in.

I followed autoconf, where the linker includes CFLAGS, CPPFLAGS, and LDFLAGS.  I assume they had a good reason to do this.

It mostly looks fine to me, too.  One question: the branch for CFLAGS
adds the value of CFLAGS to the shared linker invocation, which seems incorrect.  Why?  (And does autoconf also do this?  If autoconf does this,
it's probably for some reason and we should therefore also do it.)

The patch looks fine to me, but I'd like to hear the opinion
of a distutils guru.

I have written a better patch to sysconfig.py that doe all others so that everything works like autoconf. 
 
I will post the patch in a sec.s CFLAGS and

As a hack, I think it is unacceptable for Python.

I'd encourage you to integrate this (and CFLAGS) into
sysconfig.customize_compiler.

It would be ok if only the Unix compiler honors those
settings for now.
