I was thinking the same thing some hours ago, but I do not have the time
to rebuild the whole thing these days. When I packaged these programs,
they insisted to link against (which is not provided by the
base sytem). So it seems the problem has gone away.

The question is, what has changed? Something in buildlink2's wrappers?
