FreeBSD's rtld has some commented-out build infrastructure to build with entry but it is not used in the default case.

I am not sure we do not print something in case if entry was specified but not found then. That can hide a mistype for example.

So ideally behavior that seems to be the most correct is:

- If entry was specified and not found report warning.
- If entry was not specified then:
  1. Emit warning if not -shared.
  2. Do not emit warning if -shared.
