Buildroot specifies a value for FFLAGS on the make command-line.
While the openblas makefiles allowed this principle for the most part by
using 'override FFLAGS += ....', the make.inc file generated for the shipped
'lapack' sources just used a 'FFLAGS = ...' statement, whose value is then
eclipsed by the command-line FFLAGS.

This meant that -fPIC may be passed to the link step but not to all relevant
source files, causing relocation failures.

As the openblas patch is fixing a generic problem, I will attempt to upstream it.

+Subject: [PATCH 2/2] Makefile: fix support for passing FFLAGS on the make
+ command line
+When openblas is build while passing FFLAGS on the make command line, the
+compilation of lapack objects will not contain the flags specified in
+Makefile but _only_ those passed in FFLAGS.
+This can lead to build failure, e.g. because -fPIC is not passed to the
+compilation of most lapack objects, but is given to the link command:
+.../buildroot/output/host/bin/x86_64-linux-gcc -D_LARGEFILE_SOURCE -D_LARGEFILE64_SOURCE -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64  -Os   -O2 -DMAX_STACK_ALLOC=2048 -Wall -m64 -DF_INTERFACE_GFORT -fPIC -DNO_WARMUP -DMAX_CPU_NUMBER=4 -DMAX_PARALLEL_NUMBER=1 -DVERSION=\"0.3.9\" -DASMNAME= -DASMFNAME=_ -DNAME=_ -DCNAME= -DCHAR_NAME=\"_\" -DCHAR_CNAME=\"\" -DNO_AFFINITY -I..  -shared -o ../libopenblas_nehalem-r0.3.9.so \
+-Wl,--whole-archive ../libopenblas_nehalem-r0.3.9.a -Wl,--no-whole-archive \
+-Wl,-soname,libopenblas.so.0 -lm -lgfortran -lm -lgfortran
+.../buildroot/output/host/opt/ext-toolchain/bin/../lib/gcc/x86_64-buildroot-linux-musl/9.3.0/../../../../x86_64-buildroot-linux-musl/bin/ld: ../libopenblas_nehalem-r0.3.9.a(sbdsvdx.o): relocation R_X86_64_32 against `.rodata.str1.1' can not be used when making a shared object; recompile with -fPIC
+In the initial support for this principle, added in commit
+d0e731e8b825e7a554f245aa8f1118dcec9e2728, the flags specified in the
+makefile were appended to the flags specified on the command-line.
+Fix this situation by using 'override' for 'FFLAGS' in
+lapack-netlib/make.inc. The flags passed on the command-line are already
+part of the LAPACK_FFLAGS variable, so no '+=' is needed here.
