The problem will reoccur when the final executable is linked, though,
won't it?  Since the final executable (balsa) is a C-executable.

There is logic in autoconf linking libraries incrementally
(i.e. linking all previously discovered libraries into each successive
test) - since the final executable will be linked with them all, why
not discover the incompatibilty at configure time?
