So to address this, libtool would need to

- know how the platform behaves regarding shared library dependencies
- in the case of static libraries, continue doing what it's already doing
- for shared libraries on platforms where the linker follows library
        - when creating a shared library, make sure that it's dependent
          libraries are recorded (however that's done for a particular
          platform, probably just linking) by the library when it's created.
        - when linking against a shared library of this type, detect which
          libraries are recorded as dependant for the shared library and
          leave those out of the list of dependency_libs for the shared

Is that about it?

No.  It's much more complicated.

That's what I was afraid of.  Even the steps I outlined were complex, but
I figured someone would have solved it if it was "that easy".

Thanks for clarifying.
