Can we accept the patch as it is for now and work in the linker dependency with 
a different commit perhaps?
As I have to admit I am not quite sure what to do now.

'--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.
