Can you tell it to not use/produce shared libraries at all (e.g., just
use traditional static libraries)?  I thought libtool was supposed to be
able to do this, but the last time I tried I couldn't get it to (and the
libtool script itself was so incredibly, absurdly, convoluted and
unreadable, that I really couldn't figure out why).

For that matter, the biggest problem with libtool I think is that it is
(or at least was) so hard to understand.
