Thank you for linking libc into shared libraries.
There were some further changes to exclude the gcc libraries, but
I took this mail to reply to because that was the start.

Hmmm, what about other shared libaries which doesn't use the bsd make,
e.g. gmake or a bsd make which doesn't use the /usr/share/mk rules?
Shouldn't they be also linked against libc?

Can this be done in the linker itself and how do other OS handle this?
