Sorry, none. I'm not a libtool hacker though. :-) Maybe someone else can
solve it. However, the issue I see here is that it's hard for libtool to
know that you aren't using the library that's pulled in by another library.
I mean, by linking to the library bar which uses library foo, you're allowed
to access foo's symbols. How is libtool to know that you're not - read
symbols listed unresolved in your app? Yikes

But, maybe there's a hack. :-)
