Question for other maintainers: ImageMagick defaults to building as a

me a lot of wasted effort if someone told me right now that
"ImageMagick won't work as a shared lib on Cygwin because foo isn't a
shared library" or that ImageMagick is known to use undefined symbols
at link time. Thanks.
I built IM shared once upon a time. I believe all I needed to do was
relibtoolize, but I'll check.
Vote pro, BTW.
Thanks Chuck. That is what I needed to hear. You also have to pass
``LIBS="-lcygipc"'' to configure since it detects that Xext is exporting
SHM functions and it thus enables some SHM stuff in the Magick library
and a couple executables.
I will check if a relibtoolizing is needed (mostly be checking if it
fails without it).
