Yeah, this one is very annoying. New GNU linkers (after may or so) have an
option which will strip these at build time. apbuild also removes them
though its mechanism is a bit fragile. 

Unfortunately there are quite a lot of broken libraries out there which
don't fully specify their dependencies in the ELF headers (!!!) and
break unless you complete the set for them when compiling your own
