Grumpf! It would be nice if BFD was telling us which libraries we need
to link against bfd, just as Gtk+, Python, etc, do.
I'm a little concern that this is a bit primitive, and good enough only
on GNU/Linux or maybe Unix. Or rather, that this might break the build
on some platforms such as Windows. But that's not the case, since
the user would need to use --enable-plugins to enable plugins (it's
not automatic), so I don't see a better solution that's actually
worth the effort.

A comment explaining the dependency would be nice (likewise below).
