The -lc should be recorded as dependency only, but otherwise it doesn't
have to be requested to link. Basically, the special casing of -lc
should just disappear. If you want to have a debugging or profiling
libc, it is much better to put it in a subdirectory and use
LD_LIBRARY_PATH or RPATH to load it, which just makes it work.
