As with the other patch, I'd appreciate knowing more about what's going
on here.  Is libtool generating code to link into the main application
that calls the global constructors for each of the shared libraries?
Does that happen only on non-ELF systems?  (I'd think that on ELF
systems, shared-library initialization is handled by an initialization
function for the library, run by the dynamic loader.)

Should cgraph_build_static_cdtor just never encode the priority for
things with the DEFAULT_INIT_PRIORITY?
