Unider Linux it needs not to be specified in which library a symbol
is defined. It's enough to say: #include these headers, link in
these libraries, and you will get the following functions. (And even
libraries need not to be specified by name, as in gtk+ example.) So we
can't *require* specifying the exact library for individual functions.
