This is how `--no-fast-install' *should* work, and does in fact work on
systems with hardcode_action != relink. 

I need to dig the archive to recap why the logic is different, and then
see what we can do about it (I do remember there was a reason for this).

Until then, you can use the `-no-install' libtool --mode=link flag as a
workaround for development -- but remember not to install the generated
binaries then.
