I can confirm that using gnu sed resolves the problem; I used to have it
with gtkhtml and evolution.

As best I can understand it, the problem is that libtool does not
collapse duplicates when expanding library dependencies, nor does it
rely on shared library dependencies to make listing library dependencies
unnecessary. So frequently-used libraries like -lsocket and -lz get
listed over and over and over again. To be fair, properly collapsing
duplicate library specifications may be tough when your implementation
language is /bin/sh.
