*user-cc-flags* and *user-ld-flags* are used in all operations involving
C/C++ compiler. If it's too late, then what about (mentioned in the
previous mail) :ld-flags ?

(let ((c::*compile-verbose* t)
               (*compile-print* t))
           (c::builder :program "sdbam" :lisp-files '("/home/jack/test.c")
                       :ld-flags '("ld-flag-bam=3")))

(RUN-PROGRAM "gcc" ("-o" "sdbam" "-L/usr/local/lib/"
                    "/tmp/eclinitPjB9n2.o" "test.c"
                    "-Wl,--rpath,/usr/local/lib/" "-lecl"
                    "-lgmp" "-lgc" "-lgc" "-lgc" "-lpthread"
                    "-ldl" "-lm"))

ld-flag-bam=3 is passed before -ldl -lm etc (that, of course, won't
work, because ld-flag=bam=3 doesn't make much sense), so if that's what
you want, just pass :ld-flags to c:build-*.
