krb5-config --libs output

# krb5-config --version
Kerberos 5 release 1.11
# krb5-config --libs
-L/usr/lib64 -Wl,-O1 -Wl,--as-needed -lkrb5 -lk5crypto -lcom_err

The --libs output is somewhat surprising.  Why do we have the LDFLAGS in
there?  Packages using krb5-config --libs output to specify libraries
to link against are not happy - those are the LDFLAGS for krb5 not for
the package that depends on krb5.

This behaviour is trivial to change in but am I missing
