I have a system that supports shared libraries (Solaris 9). As part of some checks for 'getopt_long' I check if it exists in 'libiberty' if I can't find it in the standard system. It's there in libiberty. Now the problem occurs because there's only "libiberty.a" and no "" file.

Shouldn't AC_CHECK_LIB support shared/static libraries too? Or should libtool see that there's no shared library and statically link it somehow into my library that will become shared?

When libiberty is installed, it does not also install the .la file necessary for libtool to know that the library is static, and where to find the static library.

Perhaps the authors of libiberty do not expect that it will be used by anyone else.
