taken from configure --help

  LDFLAGS     linker flags, e.g. -L<lib dir> if you have libraries in a
                        nonstandard directory <lib dir>

Seems like to be your use case.

with AC_SEARCH_LIBS  you can search for desired function in multiple 
libraries (different names), which is not your case.
Of course at the end it turns to have the same effect, but as I wrote we 
should keep the build system consistent and easy to read.
