thanks for testing. Apparently, I tested with this patch applied. This 
is an open issue. Chris was not happy with this patch.

I think the -fdata-sections and -ffunction-sections flags should not be 
exported by the pkg-config file of the build system since these are 
optimization flags which affect the code generation. However, for libbsd 
these flags are mandatory and should be enforced by a library-specific rule.
