Can we agree on this?  Since we are using libtool throughout our
entire build it seems inconsistent to bypass it here.

Can you give me some examples?  I am totally in the dark here and
some input on what happens could possibly enable me to help solve
the problem.

Also, is this solvable in libtool itself?  IOW, can we come up with
a patch to libtool that solves the problem?

How did the lib prefix get there in the first place?  (does that happen
on AIX, Tru64 or HP-UX?).  If you pass -module to libtool you can name
it anything you like; like we do for our modules.
