I don't understand why you can't put all the libraries in LIBS. You said
>Originally I let configure put all of the libraries in the LIBS
variable, but I got a lot of pushback from folks with embedded systems
and similar targets where the extra libraries were taking up too much
Determing whether libraries are added to LIBS using --with flags would
fix this problem, as they could disable unwanted libraries.
