You could add the library to your product modules and build them all at
once.  However, I find that a better method is to subject the libraries to
the same kind of control as the rest of the product (with regular builds,
tagging sources, defect tracking and change control, etc.) and provide a
set of well-known interfaces that can be used and tracked by the product
builds.  The references themselves should be versioned in some way,
via source-controlled build scripts or environment settings, or by sampling
the build environment and checking it in.

A method that I've used with great success on many projects is the buildref
method.  You can find an implementation at the following URL:

I have some projects that share some libraries. Does CVS allow to have a 
common set of libraries that will be used by different projects?,
in other words, I need one copy of these libraries and a reference to 
them in each of the other projects.
