        Libtool puts a valid .so somewhere for me already, so this is what
I'm doing for that right now:

Net-BitTorrent-LibBTT/Makefile: Net-BitTorrent-LibBTT/Makefile.PL
        cd Net-BitTorrent-LibBTT && $(PERL) Makefile.PL \
        CCFLAGS="-I../.. $(CPPFLAGS) $(CFLAGS)" 

        It seems to work fine...

        Well, once I've checked it out and got my package building perl
stuff properly w/automake, I'll definately let you know what I've come up
