It's not done that way. There was a real error in one ImageMagick's
makefiles that changed the order of link flags.

That's why it was solved differently.

Hint: We also had some discussion on cygwin-apps. See thread
around  <> but
be also aware that Yakkov's patch was not enough, there was also
a dependency missing in PerlMagick/ and the *.cygport
file had to be slightly amended. The current package builds without
special (external) changes.
