The workarounds are sufficient for the release candidate tarball, but it
would be good to fix this for the final 1.8.0 release. While using
--disable-disallowing-of-undefined-references allows the build to work
it is not as good as getting the dependencies right. Getting the
dependencies right involves not only the small change to build.conf but
also running gen-make.py, and that means having Python, or editing
build-outputs.mk.
