It turns out, quite expectedly, that distutils doesn't reuse the various LDFLAGS recorded by sysconfig (why are there three of them?), but instead only uses LDSHARED:

>>> sysconfig.get_config_var('LDSHARED')
'gcc -pthread -shared'
>>> sysconfig.get_config_var('LDFLAGS')
'-m32 '
>>> sysconfig.get_config_var('PY_LDFLAGS')
>>> sysconfig.get_config_var('CONFIGURE_LDFLAGS')

I would suggest bumping this to critical or even release blocker, since building of extensions is broken when using non-default linker flags.
