Subject: gld --as-needed not portable enough

I had added the GNU linker option --as-needed to shlib.conf a while
back for GNU/Linux targets. This is just to note that there are
configurations still in use out there with GNU linkers old enough
that --as-needed may not work. Since it's a minor optimization, it
should probably be pulled until we can add a configure-time test.

Fixed (by disabling use, not by writing the test) in rev 18101.
