Not needed, it’s already documented as a dirty hack for this
corner case:

  # -----------------
  # FIXME: The GCC team has specific needs which the current Autoconf
  # framework cannot solve elegantly.  This macro implements a dirty
  # hack until Autoconf is able to provide the services its users
  # need.
  # Several of the support libraries that are often built with GCC can't
  # assume the tool-chain is already capable of linking a program: the
  # compiler often expects to be able to link with some of such
  # libraries.

(From lang.m4.)
