And the .a file is actually an archive containing a shared library!
This is how AIX traditionally names its libraries, at least the ones
that are not runtimelinked.

If you want runtimelinking (more similar to ELF), build your package
  ./configure LDFLAGS=-Wl,-brtl

and libtool will do what you want.  Note runtimelinking carries a
certain performance overhead (dunno how large that typically is).

Hope that helps.
