And libstdc++. For instance, "-lstdc++" tells the linker to do some 
magic and link against libSystem. But, as you say, this should all 
happen behind the scene.

What about adding:

case $host in
   AC_SEARCH_LIBS(dirname, [System], [have_dirname=yes], [have_dirname=no])

and keeping [gen] for all others?
