Similarly for libtool:

The answer from Mike is correct, they're static libraries that other

How do you plan to use this library?

I am trying to build some program under Cygwin/X and it seemed that there is
some sort of problem with linking to one of the libraries (*.la) which were
made during the build process.
anyway after I added "--disable-shared" to configure, the build process went

Cygwin/X) , but for now I am quite satisfied with the static libraries as
thank you all for your help !
I had a similar problem with 'libiberty' that it didn't provide shared libraries, only static. You might want to have a look at the thread:
