Debian has too, that's why the patch :)

Well, the thing is: we need to patch a fair number of applications
then (Xorg, gdb, ...) since the dependency used to be brought in
automatically (even explicitly, in the case of libc.a), so it looked
like it was a libc-provided feature.

I don't really have any strong opinion either way, except that we'd need
to patch applications to fix them.
