What about if it happens and the source don't have no custom m4 files? 0=)
I got the problem specifically in SQLite 3.0.8 sources, it seems that
$soname isn't set at all.
I'll try to debug it this evening, on the train, on my way home...
hope to find the problem and/or a fix.
BTW: is it possible to rename the "used DLLs" in a compiled executable?
