'--as-needed' is a can of worms in itself. In GNU gettext (IIRC) Debian
used '--as-needed' in the link command line, and together with libtool
that reorders the elements of the command line, it had ill effects.

More generally, Gnulib should help GNU packages and integrate into the
package's build system the best it can. It should *not* force specifies
ways of doing onto the package's build system.
