I took a first swing at this and rearranged some of these calls.
A couple of other findings:
nsl -- This might contain socket functions on some older platforms.
ipc, IPC, lc -- unknown
ld -- On AIX at least this seems to be some magic library but doesn't
have an obvious testable symbol.
compat -- could be anything, obviously
bsd, BSD -- I seem to recall that these and possibly compat are used by
Solaris to switch to BSD semantics on certain functions, but I don't
think we rely on that (anymore).
gen -- "generic" or "general", so this could be a lot, but it might
contain syslog on some platforms at least.
PW -- might be a compatibility library but none of the functions I found
are used by PostgreSQL.
resolv -- I don't think we need that.
