Hi all,

I'm a little confused about how libtool (or maybe it's automake) behaves when used as 'libtool --mode=install' for a shared library *under cygwin*.

I am in the process of porting XFCE ( to cygwin/X. XFCE has various subpackages, and a number of them use a plugin mechanism, where plugins are loaded with g_module_open() and friends.

The's for these plugins are all more or less the same. Yet, some plugins get installed as '$(libdir)/bin/cygXXXXX.dll', some as '$(libdir)/modules/cygXXXXX.dll', and others as '$(libdir)/modules/libXXXX.dll'. And I just can't figure out what's causing this.

Does anybody know about this, have some pointer on how to get these shared libraries all installed in the same place (preferrably as $(libdir)/modules/libXXXX.dll)? Any pointer on how to investigate this?
