I'm reporting this bug because the package in summary fails to build when forcing --as-needed on through spec files (check out http://blog.flameeyes.eu/2008/11/14/problems-and-mitigation-strategies-for-as-needed for details).
Please note that this bug _might_ apply to -Wl,--as-needed in LDFLAGS as well; in both cases it should be fixed. Also, if this is due to the package in question not respecting user-defined LDFLAGS, you should get to fix that too.
Check the attached build log.
P.S.: the tests fail because the library has undefined references, software using dclib would also fail.

Failed to reproduce that. Could it be that something linked to dclib/.libs/libdc.so is missing pthreads instead??

adding epatch and autotools + update
Summary of changes:
* added base.eclass to skip src_install
* bumped to EAPI=2 to get src_prepare
* added missing RDEP="$DDEP"
* added epatch and autoreconf, since I'm meddling with m4 macro

It was failing in test phase, I don't even remember why I couldn't reproduce it back then.
