I'm surprised there is no warning with CFLAGS; it appears this warning
is issued for mumble_SOURCES, LIBADD, LDADD, LDFLAGS and DEPENDENCIES

If you were to later add a program called TEST, then the results could
be surprising. But you can certainly ignore the warning if you'd like.
Alternately you can perhaps use a different name that does not conflict
with the Automake naming structure. Perhaps LDFLAGS_FOR_TEST?
You can disable the warning outright with -Wno-syntax (but this might
disable more than you'd like).
Finally, this warning is not issued for variables substituted by configure.
