I can't comment on the make targets, but I can see that:

1) This command is probably run during a script: the $Fdestdir is
clearly a variable interpolation.

2) LT_LDFLAGS is, IIRC, the variable used to hold the flags that will be
used by the linker (hence LDFLAGS) when running under libtool (hence LT)

3) As a linker flag, that -L$Fdestdir/usr/lib is saying to look for
libraries to link with in the directory $Fdestdir/usr/lib.

Hope that helps.
