I already saw that with one build using MinGW (unfortunately I'm
currently unable to use mingw compiler on my machine), so I sent
another patch for that, added your SoB, but added it to LDADD instead
of LDFLAGS as that's the right place to use it.

If it works, feel free to close the BZ or reply if it doesn't.

Have a nice day,
