I am trying to compile and install ipmiutil version 1.6.8 but for some reason it fails during automake with the following error:

util/ `LDFLAGS' is a user variable, you should not override it;
util/ use `AM_LDFLAGS' instead.

I have no idea what this means so an explanation and a solution would be greatly appreciated!

i think your automake is too old or something
how did you get to this point did you just do ./configure
if no do that first
if yes did you try

this is one of those things i can't recreate cause the package works here
