No, years of building software under Solaris train you never to forget
the -R option. And get mad at thousands of configure scripts that don't
add one automatically. And to really curse those software packages, that
actively remove this option, even if you gave it. Gimp has (or at least
had) code that filtered everything "-R ..." from your LDFLAGS....
