So you're not going to have PETSC_LIB_BASIC = -lpetscts ... -lpetscsys?
 This is useful because the list of library names is not constant and
libpetsc changed to libpetscsys in 3.1.  Lisandro (and everyone else that
needs to find PETSc from configure tests) could write special code to check
and use whatever is necessary, but why force that? In particular, putting
them in PETSC_LIB_BASIC means that old versions of the configure scripts
will still work, and new versions won't have to have a ton of branches to
work with old versions of PETSc.
