I was not aware of Rogers commit, but at the very least it break static

Furthermore,  the library directory paths are specified on the command
line, which take priority over system library paths.  The only way I can
see, given a brief read of the gcc manual, for the wrong versions to be
linked is if there are stale versions of the libraries present in the
build directory.

As far as I am concerned, having had to explicitly fix this up in
XenServer, commit b7ee8d2f432f726a1154d172016d3f2b22757fe3 should be
reverted, unless I am really misunderstanding the point of the patch.
