Re: PATCH: Fix shared library build for libiberty

Oh crap, this is bad.  Can we arrange for both the old way and the new
way to work?  I don't want to become incompatible with other modules
if I don't have to, as libiberty is used all over the place and
coordinating the needed changes would be a mess.

Could you explain why?

If you read the .c.o comment, you'll see that the .c.lo rule must also
be "false".  This is the vpath problem I was talking about - the .c.lo
rule causes in-srcdir builds to link the wrong objects if the other
rules don't happen to match.

Sigh, too bad we can't automate this, but we can't use gnumake yet.

Hmmm... I wonder if maint-tool can be tweaked to use one of the lists
to update the others?  At least it will occasionally fix any
inconsistencies.  (Don't do this yet!  One thing at a time.)

Good idea to add this comment.
