This works, no more warnings and the executable file needs only

I didn't try this before because the gcc manual page says for option

   The directories searched include several standard system directo-
   ries plus any that you specify with -L.

I read this "plus" as "searched after the standard directories".

Now that I think about it, I should have paid more attention to what the
man page for ld has to say about option "-l":

                         The directories are searched in the order  in
   which  they  are specified on the command line.  Directories speci-
   fied on the command line are searched before the  default directo-
   ries.   All  -L  options apply to all -l options, regardless of the
   order in which the options appear.

Thanks for the hint,
