build: Unbreak by adding missing definition of AX_APPEND_LINK_FLAGS

The second attempt at updating the AX_* macros in commit
7ae86729 seem to have again broken the build:
  autoreconf: running: aclocal --force -I m4 -I libgd ${ACLOCAL_FLAGS}
  configure.ac:21: error: macro AX_APPEND_LINK_FLAGS is not defined;
    is a m4 file missing?
  m4/ax_require_defined.m4:35: AX_REQUIRE_DEFINED is expanded from...
  m4/ax_compiler_flags_ldflags.m4:30: AX_COMPILER_FLAGS_LDFLAGS is
    expanded from...
  m4/ax_compiler_flags.m4:113: AX_COMPILER_FLAGS is expanded from...
  configure.ac:21: the top level

It is not clear why the build didn't break while testing commit
7ae86729 or any of the subsequent ones after that. Continuous
and the nightly Flatpak builds have also been chugging along without
any problems. It's a mystery.

Anyway, including the definition of AX_APPEND_LINK_FLAGS seems like
the obvious thing to do.

#
# SYNOPSIS
#
# AX_APPEND_LINK_FLAGS([FLAG1 FLAG2 ...], [FLAGS-VARIABLE], [EXTRA-FLAGS], [INPUT])
#
# DESCRIPTION
#
# For every FLAG1, FLAG2 it is checked whether the linker works with the
# flag. If it does, the flag is added FLAGS-VARIABLE
#
# If FLAGS-VARIABLE is not specified, the linker's flags (LDFLAGS) is
# used. During the check the flag is always added to the linker's flags.
#
# If EXTRA-FLAGS is defined, it is added to the linker's default flags
# when the check is done. The check is thus made with the flags: "LDFLAGS
# EXTRA-FLAGS FLAG". This can for example be used to force the linker to
# issue an error when a bad flag is given.
#
# INPUT gives an alternative input source to AC_COMPILE_IFELSE.
#
# NOTE: This macro depends on the AX_APPEND_FLAG and AX_CHECK_LINK_FLAG.
# Please keep this macro in sync with AX_APPEND_COMPILE_FLAGS.

#
# SYNOPSIS
#
# AX_CHECK_LINK_FLAG(FLAG, [ACTION-SUCCESS], [ACTION-FAILURE], [EXTRA-FLAGS], [INPUT])
#
# DESCRIPTION
#
# Check whether the given FLAG works with the linker or gives an error.
# (Warnings, however, are ignored)
#
# ACTION-SUCCESS/ACTION-FAILURE are shell commands to execute on
# success/failure.
#
# If EXTRA-FLAGS is defined, it is added to the linker's default flags
# when the check is done. The check is thus made with the flags: "LDFLAGS
# EXTRA-FLAGS FLAG". This can for example be used to force the linker to
# issue an error when a bad flag is given.
#
# INPUT gives an alternative input source to AC_LINK_IFELSE.
#
# NOTE: Implementation based on AX_CFLAGS_GCC_OPTION. Please keep this
# macro in sync with AX_CHECK_{PREPROC,COMPILE}_FLAG.
