No, I mean link with -lc (and possibly other libraries); this doesn't
actually change what the linker does as far as I know, but it puts
dependency information into the library, so ldd gives the correct output and
more importantly different versions of libraries can coexist even if they're
called from other libraries, as is the case with libc.
