Could this also explain what we see in some of our nightlies? The builds
broke on some platforms for us (e.g. linux ppcle). It seems that
"@LIBZ_CFLAGS@" does not get expanded correctly and finds its way into the
makefile, confusing the compiler:

( /sapmnt/appl_sw/gcc-4.8/bin/gcc ... -g1 -fPIC @LIBZ_CFLAGS@ ... -o /net/

gcc: error: @LIBZ_CFLAGS@: No such file or directory
