Hi David,

I removed this explicit linking because it causes troubles on Linux. 
Specifically, if we link those libraries into Polly and they are already 
in LLVM all static initializers are run twice. This means, all command 
line categories are added twice, which causes the relevant asserts to 
fail. Apparently the behavior on Darwin is different. If anybody has an 
idea what would be the the _right_ solution, I would be very interested. 
If we do not find the _right_ solution, we could make this change darwin
