	This is incorrect.  It looks like the library contains both shared
object and static objects.  You should build one other the other, not

	Your actions are incorrect.  Do not install the .so file.  The .so
file should be archived, as is occurring.

	If the export file already is being created, that's fine.  The
problem may be the two different objects in the archive.  You probably
should use --disable-shared or --disable-static when configuring libtool.
