With --as-needed enabled by default, -l arguments should come after the .o
files that require them. As you construct the link command manually, you
need to distinguish between flags, that usually come before sources, and
libs, that should come after them, and split your ARFLAGS accordingly.

The shared library dependencies of the binary files are specified in the
ELF headers.
They are not the same as Debian package dependencies.
