This also fixes the underlinking problems that
are unearthed with newer binutils 2.24
where one of the wireless-tools libraries is asking
for symbols from libm but all the symbols it asks
for are unfortunately weak and they do not let new
linker convince enough to link libm even though -lm
is on cmdline since we are using --as-needed by default
in linker, which means we end up with errors like

| make: *** [iwconfig] Error 1
| libiw.so.30: undefined reference to `ceil'
| libiw.so.30: undefined reference to `pow'
| libiw.so.30: undefined reference to `log10'
| libiw.so.30: undefined reference to `floor'
| collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

Oh, I was earlier testing this while trying to remove static libraries
all together, I dont think it matters as much for fixing anything
else, let me test it out and undo it
