If it comes out in the client's command line you need it in the bl3
file. Just appearing in .la turds may or may not result in that,
depending on libtool... and also whether you're doing static linking.
But mostly we ignore static linking and I'm pretty sure that in
practice most of pkgsrc would explode on a platform that only supports
static linking.

also what I wrote:

is wrong, was confused.

Depends how much work you want to let yourself in for :-)  The more
configs you test on, the more breakage you find and the more robust
everything is... after you fix all the breakage...
