Could you tell me why you are using 
-release @RELEASE@ instead of -version 0:0:0 ?

<quote from="libtool manual">
   *_Never_* try to set the interface numbers so that they correspond
to the release number of your package.  This is an abuse that only
fosters misunderstanding of the purpose of library versions.  Instead,
use the `-release' flag (*note Release numbers::), but be warned that
every release of your package will not be binary compatible with any
other release.
