Does Elf have a mechanism to specify that this object/library requires
some other library? If so, then we can use that mechanism.
The idea that users should have to specify which libraries to link
with is something I find totally lame. That people needed to do this
20 years ago is no excuse to continue such nonsense. I.e. if my C/C++
program includes <math.h> that should be enough information that the
linker can figure out we need libm.
