Hello WANG,

Thanks for your work, I'll merge this into v1.5.7, but...

>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

I'll replace these multibyte characters :-(
