[PATCH] npth: npth-config should include -lrt for clock_gettime

In the past, I got this issue, but forgot to report.  For some old
systems (for example, GNU/Linux system with old glibc), -lrt is needed
for clock_gettime function.  npth itself handles this.  npth-config
should address this problem, too.

I encountered this problem (again) for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.11.
See: https://bugs.gnupg.org/gnupg/issue1862

Here is a patch to npth, so that npth-config --libs includes the library.
Ok to apply?
