Dear Maintainer,

libedit is failing to build in Wily (proposed) due to LIBBSD_LIBS being added 
to LDFLAGS instead of LIBS.

As stated in 
https://wiki.debian.org/ToolChain/DSOLinking#Only_link_with_needed_libraries and 
libraries must be added to LIBS instead of LDFLAGS.

- fix build in Wily (proposed)

  * debian/patches/libbsd.patch: use LIBS instead of LDFLAGS 

Thanks for considering the patch.
