When you are developing a package, it is often worthwhile to configure
your package with the `--disable-shared' flag, or to override the
AC_PROG_LIBTOOL by using the
AC_DISABLE_SHARED Autoconf macro (see section The
AC_PROG_LIBTOOL macro). This prevents libtool from building
shared libraries, which has several advantages:
You may want to put a small note in your package `README' to let other developers know that `--disable-shared' can save them time. The following example note is taken from the GIMP(5) distribution `README':
The GIMP uses GNU Libtool in order to build shared libraries on a variety of systems. While this is very nice for making usable binaries, it can be a pain when trying to debug a program. For that reason, compilation of shared libraries can be turned off by specifying the `--disable-shared' option to `configure'.
