build: avoid overlinking
A while ago telemetry was added in 57ae0ec6 and it also added as-needed to config/ This seems no more needed these days as due to other build changes the ordering in buildlogs is: [...] -lrte_telemetry [...] -Wl,--no-as-needed [...] Which means telemetry no more benefits from --no-as-needed anyway. Overlinking problems get triggered by the meson generated pkgconfig which will have: [...] -Wl,--no-as-needed <somelibsusedbydpdk> This will overlink <somelibs> and in addition anything that follows as it also doesn't wrap back to --as-needed. So if a projects includes dpdk libs + <other> it will also consider <other> with --no-as-needed.
