Yes. When you tell the linker to link to libfoo.so (-lfoo), it will load
any dependencies libfoo.so has.
The point here is not whether your program uses symbols from a library
that got loaded by the linker.
The problem is that you have to tell the linker, on Cygwin, the dependency
libraries that you couldn't care less about! I don't care if cygwin1.dll
uses kernel32.dll or kernel64.dll or whatever! I know I'm linking against
-lcygwin1, but I don't care what cygwin links against. I should not have
to give -lkernel32 on the link command-line.
This is going off-topic. The bug is outside KDE.
