This needs a little bit more details, because libtool is used by a
large fraction of our packages, we pass -static only, and it just works.

Why do we have a different situation here? I thought this undefined
reference to `dl_iterate_phdr' issue was more a toolchain problem.
It's affecting a number of different packages, and is apparently a new
problem, so a fix at the package level looks a bit odd.
