-shrext is not documented in --help output

I found the -shrext wasn't listed in glibtool in Leopard 10.5.2 and from discussion with Peter O'Gorman,
he said it is also missing in libtool 2.2.6, so I'd report this issue here.

step to repro:
libtool --help --mode=link

Leopard's glibtool has -shrext, it works, it just does not appear in the
--help output. This is also true of the libtool-2.2.6 that was released
at the weekend. Please email a bug report to address@hidden,
something like '-shrext is not documented in --help output'.

It is documented in the manual -
