That one may be a hard one to avoid, unless we try to detect every little
thing. For example, fabs() needs -lm on Solaris but almost nowhere else,
and if there's no other use for -lm on e.g. Irix you would see that message
there -- so we would have to painfully finetune which library is used on
which platform, presumably through autoconf. Well, we probably do some of
that already though.
