That actual algorithm seems to be closer to:
1. Add -L options to the search path (if it exists and is a directory).
2. Record -syslibroot paths for later.
3. Unless the last one is "/". Then discard the lot, because logic is for wimps.
4. Try the cartesian product of syslibroots and *absolute* library
paths. Add ones that exist to the search path.
5. If not, add the original unless there's just one syslibroot and
it's a default path. Then skip it.
6. Do all the above in a particular order.

I'll fix the patch to do something similar, if I don't lose the will
to live first.
