Note that roland@redhat.com is an obsolete address.
I've redirected the CC to bug-hurd, since this is a Hurd-only issue
that needs discussion.

That's the --no-add-needed default.  Some systems have gone to passing that
in the standard ld command from gcc, even using BFD ld (i.e. Fedora has).

I actually think that it's arguably a feature and that Hurd-specific
programs that are using direct RPCs should probably start using -lhurduser
and/or -lmachuser as appropriate.  I'm still open to being convinced
otherwise.  But expressing your actual dependencies is a good thing, and
IMHO it makes sense to have "average" programs just using POSIXy interfaces
depend only on -lc and Hurdish programs explicitly depend on what they use.
