Well, if you are linking statically, you might as well refer to 
pg_config --libs, or any other infinite list of libraries you can dream of.  
The main reason why this is discouraged for dynamic linking is that this 
creates unnecessary package dependencies.  But for static linking, it sounds 
OK to me.  I guess we have never really bothered to carefully specify the 
static case.
