It's just doing its job correctly:
Do not search the built-in path (usually ``/usr/lib'') for -l
There was discussion about this some time ago on one of the lists, and
the most recent version of pkgsrc-current (Mar 16'th) includes a patch
for emacs that does approximately as you did (adjusts src/Makeile.in to
contain: "#define LD_SWITCH_SYSTEM_TEMACS -L/usr/lib").
