The current build (libasyncns 0.8-5) links the library to glibc's without using any of its functions.

It's also a libtool shared library build, so the default arch linker flag that would fix this (-Wl,--as-needed) is ignored.

Solution: Add
sed -i -e 's/ -shared / -Wl,-O1,--as-needed\0/g' libtool
or similar to the PKGBUILD as is done in many other packages.
This task depends upon
