Okay, then it should probably be LDFAGS="$(TARGET_CFLAGS) $(TARGET_LDFLAGS)".

Sorry!  I meant no offense. :)

For some reason, it breaks on every third or so build.  I dunno why.
Working on it.  I don't even have enough info to tell you where it is
breaking (at the moment).  I'll keep you advised.

It probably has something to do with the fact that I use
BR2_PREFER_STATIC_LIB=y
Though, I have built with this several times today and I only got the
error once out of three times.  It is complaining that it cannot build
a shared object with openssl.a as it is statically linked.

Like I said, I don't really have enough info to tell you what is broken.
