In Ubuntu, the attached patch was applied to achieve the following:

  * debian/patches/check_memcached/ld-as-needed: Use LDLIBS instead of
    LDFLAGS to get the link order happy for building with --as-needed.

The patch should be fairly self-explanatory.  LDFLAGS is for actual
options passed to the linker, while LDLIBS is for -lfoo declarations.
On systems where --as-needed is used, symbols are resolved from left
to right, and LDFLAGS ends up in the wrong spot for the linker to
do the right thing.  This patch moves -lmemcached to where it needs
to be to resolve that.
