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.

fixing as-needed issues
This patch is applied blindly, i.e. I wasn't able to reproduce this bug even on fresh stage3 chroot with every package recompiled with as-needed forced through specs.
However, minbif.cpp calls for g_thread_init(), which is defined in libgthread-2.0. Thus this patch _should_ fix issues present in the build.log
Patch works, but after ~6 weeks, this still ain't in portage? Please push.
I forgot, it build's clean and works on ~amd64, so please KEYWORD it accordingly, or should I file another bug for this?
