I disagree on two levels: disabling following proper DT_NEEDED chains is
a worse nightmare than "dependency hell", so explicit linking IMHO is
the wrong answer for pkgsrc - if there is an option to enable old behaviour,
it should be used instead. If not, we should drop support for gnu ld ;-)

But if we go for explicit linking, the files need to build
the library list automagically - not the leaf pkg.
