 The more common problem reported in #532 is now fixed. The specific
 instance of the problem here is with libraries. The linking failing
 usually but not always means the library is missing. As in this case it
 can be that dependent C libs (eg pthread) have not been listed.

 The error message for the linking failing case should be adjusted
 similarly to the header check to indicate it may be bad, and to re-run
 with -v3 for the full linker error.
