[patch] Fix linking ldconfig when --enable-static-nss (with ChangeLog)


Resubmitting with proper ChangeLog. Sorry about missing it first time around.

Configuring glibc with --enable-static-nss causes elf/ldconfig to fail to
link with:

/home/glibc-git/build/libc.a(nsswitch.o):(.data+0x8): undefined reference to `_nss_files_getaliasent_r'
/home/glibc-git/build/libc.a(nsswitch.o):(.data+0x18): undefined reference to `_nss_files_endaliasent'
... etc. ...

(AFAICT, this has been broken since at least glibc-2.3.6)

Attached patchlet fixes that.
