Well, I guess the correct upstream solution is to stop listing 
unnecessary libs, so to a certain extent this might not be desirable 
there as it could mask problems. It's really a Debian change to the
default flags.

But you have contacts with upstream, so feel free to raise it there if
you like. Maybe they will think it's a good idea.
