[R] Package configure

I am probably doing something wrong, but have run out of ideas to check and 
have not found anything on the web.

I am building some R-packages accessing EUMETSAT NWCSAF PPS and EUMETSAT 
OSISAF HDF5 products. To ensure portability I have attempted to use autoconf. 
This is my first attempt to use autoconf and  followed the description within 
"Writing R-packages".

The problem is that when I run configure manually, it generates the Makevars 
file as requested. However, when I run it through the R interface as:

--with-hdf5=/disk1/hdf5lib-1p6p4" osisaf_0.1.tar.gz

it fails to substitute LDFLAGS. CPPFLAGS, CFLAGS and LIBS are working fine. 
Have anyone experienced similar trouble? Any help would be much appreciated.
