    A user should not directly temper with the way libtool is
    created, because it is unlikely that she understands the
    impact of doing so.  I would suggest to set enable_shared and
    enable_static to yes before AC_PROG_LIBTOOL is run, so that
    the build framework can choose what libtool does during
    compile-time.  This would facilitate supporting a flag
    --enable-static-apr or something similar which acts locally
    instead of bogusly setting one global flag.
