I would still prefer to simply insist on Ubuntu fixing their tool chain. 
"NOTE: The ld --as-needed default was reverted for the final natty 
release, and will be re-enabled in the o-series."  This at least seems 
to indicate that Ubuntu is aware their move is not without problems. 
Noel, do you happen to be affected because you are on a pre-final natty 
release (whatever that is)?

Björn, do you know anything about this Ubuntu-specific thing, or anyone 
within Ubuntu we could discuss that with?
