Doing 'make DESTDIR=/staging-area install' does not seem to be supported by libtool (1.4d) when building a shared version of a library (eg,
libDepends) which depends upon another one (eg, libBase) being built at
the same time.

The problem seems to be that libDepends is relinked
at install time to ensure that it contains the correct hardcoded path to
libBase.  At install time libtool, supposedly, knows the correct path to
libBase. The linker looks only at the final location, not /staging-area, so the link fails.

Is there a way to get around this?
Does the CVS version of libtool fix this?

Ossama checked a patch in a few months ago that made
DESTDIR better supported.  I've used it with some success.
