Sorry, I admit I don't know.
Ages ago a user ended up with linking issues due to a lonely "-l" on
the command line.
I think it came from that configure check, but I'm not completely sure.
I just decided that this additional sanity check (which I had lying
around in my local tree all that time) shouldn't really hurt anything
and kind of makes sense.
If it bothers you feel free to revert it, I mostly wanted to get
rid of unnecessary diffs in my local tree and considered committing
it the better way that reverting locally.
