New libcs don't appear on the scene every other week.  If one should
appear, we will possibly have to add fresh flags for it.  Or maybe it
will just work without any flags, like FreeBSD.

That does not change the fact that trying to find common flags is a
fool's errand.  Been there, done that, it's not humanly feasible.
