Bug description

In ocamlbuild/ l548
flag ["ocaml"; "link"] & A"-linkpkg";

should be replaced by
flag ["ocaml"; "link"; "program"] & A"-linkpkg";

-linkpkg shoudl only be applied to program, otherwise it includes libraries in libraries (i.e. Unix in yourlib.cmxa).

Is this bug so difficult to solve? It seems to me that this is a rather important bug in the sense that it does impact ocamlbuild-ocamlfind interaction, which is sort of sad since the -use-ocamlfind option makes things so easy... apart from this bug.
