Thanks for reporting this (again!). I was able to duplicate it, and it
seems "-z" should indeed be passed as a linker flag; attached is a `git
am`-formatted patch that fixes the issue (it actually implements Vitaly
Magerya's suggested fix from the original thread[1]). I don't see a
reason this shouldn't have been added after that first discussion, but I
think it's probably just because a patch never bubbled up up anywhere,
so thank you.
