You can use convenience libraries...

Current versions of libtool are broken (from my experience) in that
you PIC code is used for static libraries. I read something in this
mailing list about solving this problem, so hopefully it has already
been fixed, at least in the CVS repository for version 1.4, but I have
not yet tested this.

You create a convenience library in (assuming you
use automake) with something like:

noinst_LTLIBRARIES      =
libvers_la_SOURCES      = print_version.c

and link into the main library. libtool should take care of
the rest (this sample taken from Heimdal).

(oh, before my patch the upstream version also had:
libvers_la_LDFLAGS     = -static
which meant non-PIC code was compiled in the shared libraries. I didn't
like this, so removed it).
