whole_archive_flag_spec is a libtool internal variable that specifies
to libtool how to import all symbols in a convenience library;
however - that is never even looked at when you are linking an
application - only when you are creating a shared library.

I think this is a bug, because clearly an application that dlopen's
other libraries is no different from shared libraries in this regard:
you want all symbols to be export just as well.
