Yes it is. If you're linking to libfoo, libtool reads and
adds direct links to everything in dependency_libs. Let's say libfoo
depends on libbar and libbaz. You're application ends up directly
linking to libfoo, libbar and libbaz instead of just libfoo.
No. If project when build a library don't add dependent libraries to
xxx_LIBADD libtool left dependency_libs empty in la-file.
