Hmm, configure.ldflags isn't recognized as an option in the portfile. I was
trying to add both the following:

configure.ldflags --extra-ldflags=-headerpad_max_install_names

build.env        ${configure.env} LDFLAGS+=-headerpad_max_install_names

Neither of them works unfortunately. Do you know the verbatim line I would
have to add to the portfile?

Thanks alot in adavance,
