This is something from the days of static linking which should be of no
real interest these days anymore. Nobody should be any status linking
and all DSOs should pull in their dependencies automatically.
This specific problems wouldn't be adequately analyzed any way. It
would tell you "link with libc_nonshared.a" but this is not the correct
answer. It is the offending DSO which should have been linked with that
archive, not the program spewing out the error message.
