It's nice to compile simple programs with --compile.

But sometimes even simple programs need some extra linker flags,
like -l<somelib>.

Would be good if the user could specify linker flags that --compile
could use:

    1) a new fltk-config flag like --add-ldflags, example:
       fltk-config --compile foo.cxx --add-ldflags -lsqlite3

    2) Let environment variables influence fltk-config the same way
       they can influence configure, e.g.
       ( export LDFLAGS=-lsqlite ; fltk-config --compile foo.cxx )

Attaching a v1 patch that just adds the new flag:
     -add-ldflags="-lxxx -lyyy"
Includes online docs mod.

Pretty simple mod.

I decided against letting LDFLAGS influence fltk-config,
as that might create unexpected effects for new users or
build pipelines.

Fixed in Git repository.

This has been implemented with even more features.

Closing this STR now.
