I'm opening a new ticket based on ticket 13511 ( since the last one was closed.  Read ronaldoussoren's post in Ticket 13511 in case you're still confused. 

There is no way to specify multiple lib and include directories on Linux when installing Python 2.7; other versions of Python may be affected.

hmm,  issue 13511 is perfectly closed as invalid.
Ray you misunderstood  meaning on configure flags --XXXdir.
You properly found that LDFLAGS is what is required bug correct for headers is CPPFLAGS . 
Is ./configure --help not clear for you ?

I think the suggestion here is to replace "if MACOS:" with a condition that hold for "unixy" platforms.

Distutils is now deprecated (see PEP 632) and all tagged issues are being closed. From now until removal, only release blocking issues will be considered for distutils.

If this issue does not relate to distutils, please remove the component and reopen it. If you believe it still requires a fix, most likely the issue should be re-reported at
