Since run-time linking is a set of behaviors that affects how the
applications and libraries interact and no mere file storage/naming
issue, it is clear that to run-time link or not to run-time link is
the choice really being made.  That's why I shudder when I am told
that the way to get libtool to use pure on AIX is to simply
add "-Wl,-brtl".  It hides the fact that apps can start working

But I admit that I need to read all available doc on run-time linking
and then go re-do the conversations I've had in the past with me
better able to ask why run-time linking isn't the right thing.
