IIRC, libPW was useful on SVR3.  It often had an alloca function and
some other tidbits.  I suspect everything we need is in libiberty now.

libmalloc often contained a faster malloc (but I think it used more
space.)  I don't think we need to link with that.

Dunno about libexc or libw32.  (PS I couldn't find a reference to
libexc in your patch.)

If it turns out we need libm, we can always add an AC_SEARCH_LIBS test
to configure.  But for now I don't think we need it.
