Well I'd rather it include more libraries than needed (which are not bound
on more sophisticated linkers) than an insufficient number.  Second guessing
the particular dependencies per platform is bound to leave us with a max of
10 or so supported platforms, whereas pg_config is more reliable.

If you are unhappy with its --libs flags, I really think that's something to
take up with the maintainers, eh?
