A dependent library (of the library or program being installed) has not
been installed yet.  This occurs when using -dry-run or installing
multiple libraries in the wrong order.  In the latter case, it poses a
potential problem since the first to-be-installed library might be
relinked against the old installed dependent library (if an old
installation was present).

As Bob already noted, installing multiple libraries in the correct order
is an Automake/Libtool problem not yet adressed.
