If you think about it, you'll realise why they don't in the particular
case of dynamic libraries (for .a libs, they behaviour Martin desires
If I'm using dynamic libs, the linker can't guarentee that I won't
go run-time searching for a symbol in a library mentioned on the
command line at link time. Therefore, it has to include any
libraries I mention to resolve the potential worst-case.
The simple fix is to link to the libraries you need and *no* others.
