[PATCH] makedumpfile: fix Makefile for eppic_makedumpfile.so build

When libeppic isn't installed on a standard location, building
eppic_makedumpfile.so with -leppic directly doesn't work.

Add LDFLAGS to build arguments, so that one can pass LDFLAGS="-Ldir
-Idir" to tell where to search for libeppic library and its header

For example, if eppic source is installed on the same directory level
with makedumpfile as the following:

├── arch
└── eppic_scripts
├── applications
└── libeppic

After compiling libeppic, one can use the following command to build

make LDFLAGS="-I../eppic/libeppic -L../eppic/libeppic" eppic_makedumpfile.so
