It was a bug that previous versions did create a library out of
a _PROGRAMS variable.  That's against the documentation of
_PROGRAMS and even against common sense.

1.9.3 will correctly try to create programs named,, etc. without the diagnostics you reported.

The way it has always been documented is to use _LTLIBRARIES.
Please take a look at the manual, the section `Building a Shared
Library' was revamped last year.
