Sun 06 Mar 2011 05:41:54 PM UTC, original submission:

The attached patch allows to set LIBRARY_LIBS and LIBRARY_CFLAGS variables on configure command line or in the environment to override the normal values returned by `library-config --libs` and `--cflags` respectively.

The patch is a bit difficult to read because of the indentation changes but the real change is quite trivial, here it is (without the changes in the documentation comment):

A typical scenario in which this change could be useful is mentioned in the comment, see also this thread.
