Ah indeed! curl's configure didn't figure out what underlying libs c-ares
requires. Actually, it still doesn't do this right in the current code, but
since 7.18.2 curl too uses clock_gettime() so the problem gets hidden...

But there's also a problem in c-ares' configure script since libcares.pc
doesn't seem to get -lrt in the Libs: line.
