Patch to pass LTO flags to LDFLAGS and LIBS

LLVMgold.so is not linked against libLTO.so when ld defaults to --as-needed
(which is the default on Ubuntu and afaik Fedora).

LLVMgold is built like this:
x86_64-linux-gnu-g++ [...] -lLTO [...] -o
/build/buildd/llvm-3.1-3.1/build-llvm/tools/gold/Release/gold-plugin.o [...]
-lpthread -lffi -ldl -lm 

-lLTO is passed before gold-plugin.o so it is ignored.

I'm attaching a patch that adds "-L$(SharedLibDir)/$(SharedPrefix)" to LDFLAGS
and "-lLTO" to LIBS instead of appending both to CXXFLAGS.
Makefile.config overwrites LIBS so I've added that at the bottom of the
Maybe there is a better solution for this?

With these changes LLVMgold is built like this:
x86_64-linux-gnu-g++ [...] -o
/tmp/buildd/llvm-3.1-3.1/build-llvm/tools/gold/Release/gold-plugin.o [...]
-lpthread -lffi -ldl -lm  -lLTO
