Did an Intel build. Got the same error. We get runtime "link" errors because dependencies are ignored at library generation (closure) time, due to libmythui structural problems. I will try to tighten up the patterns we ignore so that this sort of thing doesn't happen again, and of course fix the problem.

(In [11788]) A few more files are now required for frontend-only builds. Fixes #2698

I was going to try removing the '-undefined warning' from the link lines and add a few -U arguments, but there are about 5 symbols that would need to be ignored (wildcards don;t seem to be an option). That would just make linking fragile in another way. Not worth it.
