From: Matthew McClintock <>

Without this fix, when packages are being built using distutils and
the python packages were deployed from sstate-cache is it possible
that the LD command will contain an invalid sysroot override.

We can fix this by always exported LDSHARED, which is the env var
that distutil looks for to override creating shared libraries.
