for shared libraries, it is possible to use

For static libraries however, something like that does not
work since there is no ld involved, and automake warns
about the missing lib prefix. Is there a flag I can use to
silence the warning anyway? I am only going to use the library
within the project itself anyway (noinst_LIBRARIES).

Do you know for sure that the archiving tools on all the many systems your software might potentially run on will work as expected without the 'lib' prefix? Why do you desire to do something unusual?
