Not really acceptable ...

... and I'm not sure I like either of those either. The first seems
likely to introduce as many problems as it fixes, and I don't see a
reasonable way for the script to test whether --as-needed "works"
(for a value of "works" that's rather unclear anyway).

Could we make the problem go away for you if we changed the order in
which these libraries are probed for? That's a hack, surely, but it
seems like one much less likely to break other working cases than any
of the alternatives you suggest.
