And when you do so, could you include the attached patch to
(or whichever file generates it)?  The patch from Gentoo fixes handling
of -Wl,--as-needed when linking libraries by keeping it in argument
order rather than appending it to the end of the link command like other
-Wl, flags (as per the GNU ld manual, this flag only affects -l flags
which *follow* it).  This makes a big difference for Linux
