(Please do not complain about the need for looking at the build log until you can provide an easy way to open bugs with the correct data picked out of a tinderbox log. Thanks.)

The only file which failed to respect LDFLAGS is the Ruby binding.  It appears that hwoarang@g.o (tried to) fix this and several other problems.  However, as called out by a warning near the top of the build log, a typo prevented the Ruby fix from being effective:

     8	 * Applying mlt-0.5.4-asneeded.patch ...
     9	  [ ok ]
    10	sed: -e expression #1, char 11: : doesn't want any addresses
    11	>>> Source prepared.

Checking the ebuild, we see:
    67 	 sed -i "/^LDFLAGS/:s += : &${LDFLAGS} :" src/swig/ruby/build

There are two problems here.  The serious problem is that the s and the colon were transposed, causing the sed to fail.  The minor problem is that neither of the sed calls have an ||die, so the ebuild did not bail out on the failure.  sed does exit with an error when it fails to parse the expression cited here, so an ||die would have caught it.

Caveat: I have not run the ebuild with the expression fixed, so correcting the sed expression may not be sufficient to produce a perfectly functional ebuild.

seems its been fixed during the 0.7.6 bump
