Yep, thanks.  It also shows that I forgot to ask a more basic question
first: namely, which libtool version is was.  The log shows that it's
1.5.6.  This is very old.  The corresponding code has changed since,
and the code that would expand to this whole-archive bit has gone.

I would urge you to please use a newer libtool, or ask the maintainers
of the package you're using to rebootstrap it with a newer version.
Current Libtool is 2.2.6a.

FWIW, the bug has been fixed in 1.5.20, with

    * Do not add installed static litool libraries to
    convenience, they are not convenience libraries.
