This is the recent behavior on all other platforms  and I like to be sure, 
that my patches only affect windows/cygwin.

The library is required on all other platforms. Because linux an other os 
supports undefined symbols on link time don't using this dependencies will 
not result in an error, so people simple forgot to add this i assume.

I have left this out because I wasn't sure, which to use under linux . Any 
hints welcome.
