So some libraries require -rdynamic, but at the moment everything
seems to be linked with -rdynamic, needed or not. For example, if
you need libgnomeui, then -rdynamic is automatically added.
It would be more logical if -rdynamic was only added when linking
against, for example, libglade?
(It wouldn't hurt if a small configuration change would decrease
the size of most executables with a few %, but maybe there are
drawbacks or complications that I'm not aware of.)
