The following example is a bit constructed, but shows a silent change
of run-time behaviour if --as-needed is passed:

$ cat > ertest.c <<'EOF'
#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>

#include <X11/Xutil.h>
#include <X11/Intrinsic.h>
#include <X11/Shell.h>

static String fr[] = {
        "*geometry: 100x100\n",

int main(int argc, String argv[]) {
        XtAppContext context;
        Widget app_shell;

        app_shell = XtOpenApplication(&context, "ERTEST",
                        NULL, 0, &argc, argv, fr,
                        applicationShellWidgetClass, NULL, 0);
        return 0;
$ gcc -o ertest -Wall -O2 ertest.c -lXaw -lXt
$ ./ertest &
$ editres
# Select Commands/Get Tree and click at the window the first program created
$ gcc -o ertest -Wl,--as-needed -Wall -O2 ertest.c -lXaw -lXt
$ ./ertest &
$ editres
# Try it again and it fails now...
