This has been a persisting problem since libtool 1.4, and all (yes, all)
software that install libraries are affected. Ossama has committed a
patch during November, so you will not see it if you use CVS libtool

However, I need to ask everybody a question too. It seems that this patch
is not perfect; it doesn't put $inst_prefix_dir as the *first* -L flag,
so one may possibly still pick up libraries in standard locations
(say /usr/lib). This is observed when I compile ImageMagick. Using CVS
libtool, or even backporting the patch to 1.4.3 doesn't help.

Is it correct to FORCEFULLY put $inst_prefix_dir in the first place, so
that those libraries placed in staging area are always searched first?
