The difference is just in the specs, I guess. In the i386 version,
there's something like 

  %{!shared: ... %{profile:-lc_p} %{!profile: -lc}}

I.e., libc is only linked if -shared is not given. Basically the same
thing is done for m68k and sparc. So I guess that is what is intended.
Don't know why the -lc isn't ommited on the alpha.
