Goldendict are built by qt4-qmake. I think that You should report
about such projects in qt4-qmake package, because just qt4-qmake
generates linker call command. I think that it is the same as packages
which are under automake/autoconf.
There is no magic behind neither qmake nor autotools. They only link what they
are told to link.
But only because qt4-qmake in Debian is patched to not follow library
dependency chains when linking. I think that's the right thing to do
and that this isn't qmake's bug, but it's disingenuous to imply qmake is
not at fault at all when there is a conscious design decision behind it.
