Also, there are issues with libtool and it's reliable use with "old"
versions of 'ar' that truncate _names_ to 16 or less chars. Basically,
when libtool recreates an archive, if the names have been truncated
and lack the '.o' or '.lo' extension, they aren't loaded in the
archive. Nasty. This might be a commonly known problem, but I've
never heard it before and it just bit me under PHP4, where I'm
hoping to find some workarounds and/or contact the libtool
