[ Sorry for being lazy to check by myself, but apparently the question
  is of wide-interest. ]

Is that something that packagers should worry about or not? I mean,
the specific modules/libraries/... are already detected by configure

(packages) enforce that?

Many thanks in advance (and for native Dynlink of course :-))!
