Looks like this is fixed in today's tree by not building bpfilter when
CC cannot link against user libraries. Unfortunately this means that
it will never be built by my infrastructure (since all my compilers are
minimal cross compilers) :-(

I may look into getting a different set of compilers (or doing my
PowerPC builds natively).
