I would recommend to try the usage of libtool in mod_jserv, this did
not work under AIX (the compiler and linker options where pretty
bugus). I gave up digging into the script as it was so obfusciated I
could not understand what was going on. This event has made me giving
out the advice to avoid libtool like the plague to anyone who did ask.
For my experience libtool only works for platforms where it is easy to
generate shared libraries (like using cc -G), anything that is more
complicated won't work.
