yes, that kind of thing only works "by accident", depending on whether
the library that happens to propagate its flags to the object file
happens to have flags that also work for the other library.  apparently
people think it's not a problem, given the ever rising number of these
warnings... i've now fixed the ones that occur with my configuration,
which required adding a couple more static libraries...
