No. Using --as-needed produces better results than we can ever achieve 
with reduced linking.

And I gave up doing reduced linking on koffice. Every single target 
required a fixup. That's technically the right thing to do, but it was 
too much work. Even on my fast machine, the cycle is around one minute.

But that doesn't mean our reduced linking effort is unnecessary.
