we've looked at this; one of the problems is that this needs to be a per
package thing; there are valid setups where --as-needed breaks (eg apps
that have plugins can break).

Ideally we teach pkg-config about this; but the last time I experimented
with that I got bitten by pkg-config being too smart for it's own good
and effectively breaking down ;(
