Description of problem:
The goal is to be able to say %define _hardened_build 1 in one's specfile and have all the necessary gcc and ld flags configured for you in the common cases. This requires passing different arguments to the compile and link phases. rpm has a $RPM_OPT_FLAGS for CFLAGS, but no matching RPM_LD_FLAGS for LDFLAGS.
I tried to find a way to export this from redhat-rpm-config, but it's pretty much not possible without copy-and-pasting the entire ___build_pre section from rpm. Much simpler to just patch rpm's macros file directly, as in the attached patch.
This is a bit of a layering violation since __global_ldflags is defined in redhat-rpm-config, but detangling that mess is for another day.
