I've applied, but I've changed this to be a post install staging hook.
This way, the normal "make install" is done for staging, and then those
additional libraries are installed as well. I've also added a comment
in the code explaining why we're doing this.

It would still be good to let upstream know that those libraries are
used by other programs, and see if they would accept to adjust the
Makefile.am logic to install such libraries.
