$ g++ -O2 -std=c++11 -U__STRICT_ANSI__ -D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2 -include
znc/zncconfig.h -L/bin -lznc-1.6 -shared -o alias.so alias.cpp

This is roughly what znc-buildmod does when one runs "znc-buildmod
alias.cpp", it's provided in the -devel package. And it works.

(I've omitted several long flags from that command line, which are
irrelevant for this discussion)

The current packaged version uses '-L"/bin"' with quotes instead, I need
to fix this.

Oops. Sorry then!
