How can setting LIBS affect the bootstrap test?  Before your patch,
there didn't seem to be anything in the testsuite that used it.

If the problem is that your ld needs some special libraries to link,
and so the bootstrap test doesn't work, perhaps you should look at
configure.host and the HOSTING_LIBS variable?
