Perhaps the logic for which libraries gets added to LDFLAGS needs to be

DragonFly is just the first to notice.
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.


That solution may work in some cases, but I'm guessing the majority are fixed in the leaf package. At least so far, it's really not that common of a source
of breakage.  The biggest offender so far is libm, followed by libX11.
