Why does it happen at all? S20templates does not match "-name '*.so'"
so it should not be passed as an argument and nothing links to it so
mklibs should not pull it in eigther.

I don't realy see the point in checking files not passed as argument
or linked against but I haven't worked on mklibs for a long long time.
