It is a libtool-introduced dependency that now requires the library to be
installed before the binary.

This dependency does not exist when libtool is not used.

Incorrect. Installing a library which a binary must be linked against
this way is fundamentally non-portable. For example, on HP-UX, the
embedded runtime path will be the path to the library from the build
directory, not the installed library directory. So, regardless of
whether or not libtool is used, order matters.

To my knowledge, Automake does not know how to build shared libraries without the assistance of libtool. Static libraries do not exhibit the library install order issues.
