This depends on how the macro is used.  Taken out of context, I don't
know.  Could be space delimited, could require a -l before each library
name, could be something else.

The general procedure in this kind of situation is: Find the command that
uses this macro in the Makefile.  Use "man" for that command to learn what
options/arguments it wants.  Experiment.  If getting nowhere, ask people
familiar with that makefile (Oracle groups).
