No, it only does when you don't provide your own Makefile.  Because you for
shared object support you already have to provide one, you then can make sure
the libphp3.a is not removed. Take the proxy/Makefile.tmpl as a start and
create a PHP3 variant where your libphp3.a is preserved. 

But for shared object support you really need to build mod_php3 in its own
subdir because else you cannot provide your own build commands (in extra/ a
standard approach like in standard/ is used).
